What is Digital Voter Suppression
Digital voter suppression™ is the use of online services to send inaccurate, misinformation, false data, mobile messages, and/or images for the purpose of suppressing the vote during any election season. The use of online services rarely stands on its own, and can be in connection with or in addition to any additional physical voter suppression activities if they include a digital, social networking, technical or mobile component.
