CISA Launches Election Security Rumor Control Webpage; Flagler County Sheriff’s Office Assists FBI on Voter Intimidation Investigations

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has launched a Rumor versus Reality page in order to address some common disinformation and misinformation rumors that can undermine public confidence in the electoral process. This webpage will help voters to distinguish between rumors and facts on election security issues.

CISA has been working with election officials across the country over the past several years in preparation for the 2020 election to ensure it is as secure as possible. CISA has now launched an election security rumor control page at cisa.gov/rumorcontrol to cover a variety of scenarios to help voters to distinguish between rumors and facts on election security issues.

“We remain confident that no foreign cyber actor can change your vote,” Director of CISA Chris Krebs said. “And we still believe that it would be incredibly difficult for them to change the outcome of an election at the national level.”

A few things you can do to inform yourself:

  1. Look for trusted sources of information, like election officials.
  2. Only share trusted sources of information with others.
  3. Discourage others from sharing sensational but unverified information.

Big Tech is using a content filtering system for online censorship. Watch our short video about NewsGuard to learn how they control the narrative for the Lamestream Media and help keep you in the dark. NewsGuard works with Big-Tech to make it harder for you to find certain content they feel is 'missing context' or stories their editors deem "not in your best interest" - regardless of whether they are true and/or factually accurate. They also work with payment processors and ad-networks to cut off revenue streams to publications they rate poorly by their same bias standards. This should be criminal in America. You can bypass this third-world nonsense by signing up for featured stories by email and get the good stuff delivered right to your inbox.
 

“We want everyone to vote with confidence and feel secure in the voting process,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “No one should ever use voter intimidation or antagonizing comments to try to influence someone to vote for a particular candidate. Let’s all work together on maintaining a calm and peaceful election season so everyone can exercise their Constitutional rights.”

FCSO’s Homeland Security Section is assisting the FBI on voter intimidation investigations, such as the recent email threats received by some residents.
