TTP Investigation: Google Pushing Scam Ads on Americans Searching for How to Vote

TTP released a new report revealing that Google is allowing scammers to prey on Americans seeking information about how to vote in the upcoming election, despite the company’s claims that it is making efforts to provide voters with “authoritative and objective information.” TTP found that search terms like “register to vote,” “vote by mail,” and “where is my polling place” generated ads linking to websites that charge bogus fees for voter registration, harvest user data, or plant unwanted software on people’s browsers.
