All elections feature claims and counterclaims by contending parties. The 2020 election seems to be an especially salient example, as conspiracy theories and a variety of misleading narratives, many of which can be debunked with professional fact-checking, are rampant.

At Indiana University’s Observatory on Social Media (OSoMe), our team is tracking widely circulated narratives throughout the 2020 election, with the goal to assess the public’s awareness of them, the extent to which they are believed, and whether one’s political leaning is related to vulnerability to these narratives.
