Voter suppression in the November 2019 Spanish general election
We took the initiative to summarise their findings, which you can read here.
- The campaigns spread their messages by targeting citizens with advertisements on fake Facebook pages and by placing posters on the streets of left-leaning cities.
- Some advertisements were critical of socialist party PSOE, left-wing Unidas Podemos, centre-right Ciudadanos, and the far-right VOX party.
- Other advertisements encouraged abstention from voting by the use of fake appeals from Ciudadanos, PSOE, Unidas Podemos, and Más País.
- The investigations alluded to the possibility that associates of right-wing Popular Party may have been responsible for the campaigns.
