We are Brendan Nyhan, of Dartmouth University, and Claire Wardle, of First Draft News, and we have been studying disinformation for years while helping the media and the public understand how widespread it is — and how to fight it. This election season has been rife with disinformation around voting by mail and the democratic process -- threatening the integrity of the election and our system of government. Along with the non-partisan National Task Force on Election Crises, we’re keen to help voters understand this threat, and inoculate them against its poisonous effects in the weeks and months to come as we elect and inaugurate a president. The Task Force is issuing resources for understanding the election process, and we urge you to utilize these resources.
**Update: Thank you all for your great questions. Stay vigilant on behalf of a free and fair election this November. **
