Tell the FEC: Subject social media ads to the same disclosure standards as TV and radio ads

Federal Election Commission:

The FEC’s lack of preparedness around social media and our elections has left us vulnerable to foreign interference. Now, there is growing evidence of Russia’s weaponized use of Facebook and Twitter in the 2016 election. It is critical that the FEC act immediately to protect our democracy from foreign interference. We demand that you issue immediate rules so that social media advertising―and all forms of paid online advertising―has to disclose the same information as traditional political advertising.

    Social media ads remain a gray area in our elections. In 2011, Facebook requested an advisory opinion from the Federal Election Commission on the issue, and to this day, the FEC remains deadlocked.

    Now, the FEC has opened up a public comment period, requesting feedback on how to address paid online advertising, including on Facebook and Twitter.

    Sign the petition below to submit an official comment to the FEC and demand that social media advertising relating to elections and advocacy disclose the same information as other forms of political advertising.
