US election 2020: What does it cost and who pays for it? – BBC News

US election campaigns can start years in advance and cost billions of dollars. Due to coronavirus, this year’s cycle looks a little different, but huge sums are still being spent ahead of the election on 3 November.

In 2016, the US elections cost an estimated $6.5bn. BBC Reality Check breaks down who paid for it and looks at how much 2020 might cost.

    🇬🇧🇺🇸 A very amusing headline on the BCC’s website reads : “How to spot US election disinformation”. You don’t need a whole article! Just look at the top of your screen : do you see “bbc . com”? If so, you’re being “disinformed”! 🇺🇸🇬🇧
