Statement from Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson on correcting misinformation being shared in Flint

“We received reports that an unknown party is purposefully spreading misinformation via robocalls in Flint in an attempt to confuse voters there, and I want to ensure everyone who plans to vote in person understands they must do so — or be in line to do so — by 8 p.m. today. Lines in the area and across the state are minimal and moving quickly, and Michigan voters can feel confident that leaders across state and local government are vigilant against these kinds of attacks on their voting rights and attempts at voter suppression, and we will be working quickly all day to stamp out any misinformation aimed at preventing people from exercising their right to vote.

Please remember to only believe information from trusted media sources, your local clerk, or me and my team. Anyone with questions can call their clerk or visit And most importantly you can join us in the fight against misinformation, and report anything you see”
