LANSING, Mich. — Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel tweeted that her office received reports of robocalls going to Flint residents.

The calls said that due to long lines, voters should wait until tomorrow to cast their ballot. Nessel said that the claim is clearly false and in effort to suppress voters.

In addition to AG Nessel’s tweet, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson issued a statement regarding the misinformation via the Michigan SOS twitter account, stressing that everyone who intends to vote in the 2020 general election must do so by 8:00 p.m. Tuesday.

Voter intimidation is illegal. If you experience intimidation, harassment or discrimination while voting or waiting to vote, contact the election protection hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE (687-8683).
