Trump left off Oregon ballot?! No: Hoax snags over 1,000 retweets

An online hoax reached 37,000 people before the creator came clean. (@JohnLuce/Twitter)

EUGENE, Ore. (KVAL) - The photo says it all: Donald J. Trump and Mike Pence aren't on the Oregon ballot!

In fact, Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine are on there twice!

One problem: It isn't true.

In 2 hours, more than 1,000 people retweeted the image, reaching nearly 37,000 people.

The apparent author of the hoax attempted to blow the whistle.

Still, some Twitter users continued to repeat the claim. With gusto.

While others suggested ways to improve on it.

Oregon ballots went in the mail this week and are due back by 8 p.m. on November 8.

If you suspect a problem with your ballot, contact your county clerk ASAP.
