For Immediate Release — Jan. 11, 2022 — Washington, D.C. — Today, the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) is pleased to announce the continuation of its landmark, nonpartisan initiative highlighting state and local election officials as trusted sources for election information entitled #TrustedInfo2022.
The nearly 40 NASS members who serve as their states’ Chief Election Official are working continuously to inform Americans about safeguards at every step of the election process from registration, to voting, to post-election procedures. #TrustedInfo2022 will increase voter confidence and reduce misinformation and disinformation by directing voters to election officials’ websites and verified social media pages.
“By turning to election officials for trustworthy information, voters can better understand the measures that go into their elections and have more faith in the integrity of the democratic process,” said Kyle Ardoin, NASS President and Louisiana Secretary of State. “That is why I encourage everyone to successfully prepare for this year’s elections by joining NASS and our members in supporting #TrustedInfo2022.”
“We want to ensure all voters have the most accurate and up-to-date information they need to perform their civic duty through voting. The public can help in that effort by only sharing election information from trusted sources, and promoting #TrustedInfo2022 within their networks and communities,” said Tahesha Way, NASS President-Elect and New Jersey Secretary of State.
Since its initial launch in November 2019, the #TrustedInfo initiative has received commendation from a variety of non-profit, private sector and government organizations.
