We are committed to securing our platforms, providing transparency and empowering people to vote.

A vote counted is a voice heard.

Meta invests a huge amount of effort and resources to protect elections online — not just during election periods but at all times. While each election is unique, in recent years Meta has developed a comprehensive approach to how elections play out on our platforms; one that gives people a voice and helps them participate in the civic process while combating voter interference and foreign influence.

Since 2016, we have made massive investments in safety and security with around 40,000 people working on these issues.


We are focused on providing reliable election information while combating misinformation across languages.

We’re continuing to connect people with details about voter registration and the election from their state and local election officials through in-app notifications and our Voting Information Center.


We have advanced security operations to take down manipulation campaigns and identify emerging threats.

We have exposed and disrupted dozens of networks that have attempted to interfere with US elections.
