Full Fact welcomes consultation to update our outdated election laws

By Staff Writer

Today the government has launched a public consultation on transparency in digital campaigning. Specifically, they have put forward a proposal to require digital election material to explicitly show who is promoting it and on whose behalf - also known as a ‘digital imprint’. We said before the last election that these changes were urgent, and that is still true now. Full Fact welcomes the consultation and we will be carefully considering the government's proposals before responding in full. None of our work to tackle bad information and protect votes, including throughout the last election, would be possible without our readers and supporters.
