Online Disinformation and Questioning of Election Results


This study analyzed posts with accusations of fraud in electronic voting machines and defense of printed auditable votes published on Facebook between November 2020 and January 2022. We sought to find the most frequent and popular posts, actors and links in terms of interactions over these 15 months, in another monitoring effort of the origins and dynamics of mobilization of the agenda that causes electoral mistrust and the questioning of election results on social media. This is the third research report investigating allegations of fraud in electronic voting machines developed by the project Digitalization and Democracy in Brazil, a partnership between FGV DAPP and the German Embassy in Brasília.
