Former Clinton staffers want Facebook to alert voters about Louisiana runoff race

Former Clinton staffers want Facebook to alert voters about Louisiana runoff raceA group of former Hillary Clinton campaign staffers is asking Facebook to expand its election alerts to include local races in time for a crucial Louisiana run-off election this month. The Clinton staffers formed a nonprofit called Flippable in the wake of their party’s crushing losses in November, in order to inform and organize Democrats around state and local races. Chris Walsh, a founder of Flippable who was the Clinton campaign’s Ohio regional out-of-state coordinator, said Facebook will consider their request if they are able to demonstrate a popular “outpouring of support.” The group has started a petition to prove that Facebook users would like to be reminded of local elections.
