Google Says Will Block US Election Ads After Nov 3

5

New York: Alphabet’s Google is aiming to block election ads on its platform after the US election on November 3.

As per news reporters,  Google mailed advertisers saying they will not be able to run ads “referencing candidates, the election, or its outcome, given that an unprecedented amount of votes will be counted after election day this year.”

Facebook also said it would stop accepting new political ads in the week before the election and would reject ads that seek to claim victory before the results of the election are declared.

Twitter banned political ads last year, while Google has previously limited the ways election advertisers could micro-target voters.
