WASHINGTON, DC - Let's face it, this election has been so bizarre, at times it's been difficult to separate what's real from what's fake. Maybe that's why someone thought they could pull a fast one with fake ads urging Hillary Clinton supporters to vote via text.

Of course, there's no such thing as text voting, but some people are looking at the ads as more than just a harmless prank because many appear to target minority voters. In fact, one was written entirely in Spanish.

Twitter initially said the fake ads didn't violate its terms of service, but later had a change of heart as they began removing the ads and suspending accounts that created them. Other users are reportedly still posting the ads.

So memo to all voters: If you want your vote to count, you'll just have to get up and get in line like the rest of us.
