On the dawn of Election Day, a new voting scam is circulating the internet.

Fake twitter ads featuring Hillary Clinton are being shared in both Spanish and English, saying users can text in their votes. Some of the ads read “Save time. Avoid the line.” Others say “Vote early. Text ‘Hillary’ to 59925." 

At least four ads stated they were “Paid for by Hillary for President," however official Clinton ads would say “Paid for by Hillary for America.”

Twitter has removed the fake ads but other users were still posting them.

Voters can't text in their ballots. To vote, head to your local polling place or send an absentee ballot in the mail.
