True or false? Are all campaign messages based on fact? Tell us what we should check

Young campaigners agains the proposed gambling law in front of the Swiss parliament

Campaigners on all sides, including these opponents of the proposed gambling law, are wading into the debates to win over voters. But are all the sound bites accurate?


Have you heard a politician on the radio or read an op-ed in the paper about the June vote and wondered, “Is that true?” We at need your help to spot claims we can fact check.

Maybe it’s statistics on gambling that sound improbable. Or maybe it’s a statement about measures taken against financial crises that sound too good to be true. 

Campaigning for the June 10 vote on a new gambling law and an initiative on sovereign money is getting heated. But not all sound bites have the same measure of truth to them. 

If you come across a factual claim that you think we should check during the current voting campaign, tell us in the form below (mention who said it and where you heard it). We’ll then publish fact checks of claims that are based on verifiable facts (we cannot check opinions or predictions).
