Robocalls Urge Flint, Michigan, Voters to Not Vote Until After Polls Close

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said on Tuesday morning that residents of Flint, Michigan, are receiving robocalls claiming that the voting lines are too long and instructing them to vote on Wednesday instead (when votes will no longer be counted).

“Getting reports of multiple robocalls going to Flint residents that, due to long lines, they should vote tomorrow,” Nessel wrote on Twitter. “Obviously this is FALSE and an effort to suppress the vote. No long lines and today is the last day to vote. Don’t believe the lies! Have your voice heard!”

The robocalls appear to be targeting Flint residents in particular. Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer tweeted, “an unknown party is purposefully spreading misinformation via robocalls in Flint in an attempt to confuse voters.” Flint has a majority nonwhite population and roughly 54 percent of its population was Black as of 2019.
