On November 12th, the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) is launching a new initiative called #TrustedInfo2020. The nation’s Secretaries of State, 40 of whom serve as their state’s chief election official, along with other state and local election officials are continuously working to inform Americans about the elections process.
#TrustedInfo2020 encourages American citizens to look to their state and local election officials as the trusted sources for election information. Driving voters directly to election officials’ websites and verified social media pages will ensure voters are getting accurate election information, and cut down on the misinformation and disinformation that can surround elections.
“The best way we can combat potential foreign influence in the 2020 elections is to be united as Americans, and look to election officials for accurate election information,” said Paul Pate, NASS President and Iowa Secretary of State. “By promoting #TrustedInfo2020 my colleagues and I are able to shine a bright light on the importance of getting election information directly from us—the trusted sources.”
“Election officials are experts in their field. We are the go-to sources for correct and up-to-date information for every election. We answer questions, solve problems, certify results, and protect the integrity of every election, among many other things. It’s our job to be the trusted sources people use for election information and we’re going to make sure that voters can easily and securely participate in the 2020 elections,” said Maggie Toulouse Oliver, NASS President-elect and New Mexico Secretary of State.
