You’ve seen the posts on Twitter and Facebook, or maybe someone forwarded a WhatsApp message about suspicious activity with California’s recall ballots.

Unfounded rumors about election security have always been around, but they’ve been rampant since the 2020 election and former President Trump’s “Stop the Steal” movement. Despite those allegations, the 2020 elections were found to be “the most secure in American history,” according to a statement from a coalition of government and election industry officials.

California’s Fair Political Practices Commission rejected a complaint filed Thursday by the state Republican Party, which alleged Gov. Gavin Newsom failed to disclose details surrounding his $3.7 million Fair Oaks estate in annual reports.

The FPPC investigated a similar complaint earlier this year and cleared Newsom of wrongdoing.
