NASS Thanks All Who Helped Promote #TrustedInfo2020 Election Initiative

For Immediate Release — Dec. 30, 2020 — Washington, D.C. — At the beginning of the 2020 Election cycle, the National Association of Sec­retaries of State (NASS) launched an initiative called #TrustedInfo2020. The campaign’s goal was to amplify the voices of Secretaries of State, 40 of whom serve as their state’s chief election offi­cial, along with other state and local election officials, as they worked continuously to inform Amer­icans about the elections process.

#TrustedInfo2020 encouraged American citizens to look to their state and local election offi­­cials as the trusted sources for election information. 

“The #TrustedInfo2020 campaign made every effort to ensure that voters could easily participate in the 2020 Election. When we launched the campaign, we could never have imagined that COVID-19 would make promoting trusted sources of information even more essential,” said Maggie Tou­louse Oliver, NASS President and New Mexico Secretary of State. “No matter the circumstances, our job is to be the trusted source for election information. I am looking forward to what comes next from NASS in promoting trust in elections and in the work of Secretaries of State.”

“This campaign, promoted by state and local election officials, as well as many partners, encour­aged American citizens to look to their state and local election officials for voting information. We want our voters to know who their election officials are and to ask them their voting questions. Elections for public office are held every single year throughout the United States,” said Kyle Ar­doin, NASS President-Elect, and Louisiana Secretary of State. “We encourage voters to continue to look to election officials as the trusted and verified sources for election information in 2021, 2022, and beyond.”
