Facebook says it is banning advertisements that seek to delegitimize the outcome of elections.
This comes amid growing unsupported claims in the run-up to the U.S. presidential election that certain methods of voting, including voting by mail voting, are corrupt.
Many more people are using postal ballots this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
