Fox & Friends: Twitter Flags Nonprofit's Post on Military Ballots
True the Vote Founder Catherine Engelbrecht joined Fox & Friends' Jedediah Bila to discuss Twitter's attempt to silence True the Vote after posting a tweet on September 15 encouraging citizens to call their county to ensure U.S. military ballots are mailed to troops on time. Twitter temporarily suspended True the Vote's account and asked that it remove the tweet. This action was not taken until President Trump retweeted the post with commentary on September 17.

True the Vote is an election integrity advocacy organization that was sending out information of public interest regarding deadlines for our military voters, pursuant to the 'Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment' Act, federal law, which requires states to send absentee ballots to UOCAVA voters at least 45 days before federal elections. The original tweet raises awareness about the last business day before the 45-day deadline. View the full statue here: https://www.fvap.gov/uploads/FVAP/Pol... Is Twitter seeking to stifle organizations that are sharing factual information about our upcoming election? Or is Twitter punishing True the Vote after President Trump retweeted our post? Or both? Either way, True the Vote will not stop sharing information that is critical to voters ahead of this important election.
