In the aftermath of the Election Day 2020 and the days of counting that followed, misinformation ran free. We were there.

Voting in the 2020 U.S. Election may be over, but the misinformation keeps on ticking. Never stop fact-checking. Follow our post-election coverage here.

The voting is done. Misinformation is flourishing.

As the internet's premier fact-checking site, we've been gauging the truth behind the candidates' claims since the beginning of the race (see a collection of fact checks involving Trump here and Biden here), as well as rumors about the voting process and what Americans can expect in this historic election. And on Election Day itself, we checked misinformation as it was happening.

Now, we've got new fact checks to combat misinformation about the election's results. We introduced "rumor alerts" to warn readers where they should tread lightly. We use those posts to send up a flare about rumors/misinformation for which we may not have enough information for a complete fact check with a truth rating, but that we want to warn audiences about anyway.

Check out all our new fact checks and coverage below.
