(WILX) -- Facebook has taken down a network of Facebook pages and Instagram accounts just hours before polls open on election day.

U.S. law enforcement tipped the company off that these pages could be linked to foreign entities.

Facebook says it removed 30 Facebook accounts and 85 Instagram accounts.

Almost all of the Facebook pages linked to the accounts appeared to be in French or Russian while the Instagram ones were mostly in English.

U.S. officials say there is no indication that America's voting infrastructures have been compromised but they warn that foreign operatives are trying to influence voters.
