Here’s yet another example of a Republican campaign or group putting out misleading robocalls that help suppress the vote, this time telling people to go to the wrong polling place. A local TV station has the audio and the real polling places:
As I’ve written before, this happens every election. The specific technique varies. Sometimes it tells people that the date of the election has changed, or that their polling place has changed. Sometimes it tells them that they don’t need to vote, that one side has already won. Sometimes it’s mailers with the wrong addresses, as has already happened, or letters sent out telling people that they could be arrested if they go vote. And it’s always done by Republicans — and it’s always a regrettable mistake, never intentional. Right.
