Washington, D.C. – The National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS), and its nearly 40 Chief Election Official Members, come together ahead of the 2024 elections to relaunch the association’s initiative as #TrustedInfo2024. This effort continues to highlight election officials as the trusted sources for election information, which is critical in the age of mis-, dis-, and mal-information campaigns.
“When voters need accurate election information, my answer is always clear: turn to Chief Election Officials. #TrustedInfo2024 is an excellent tool in democracy’s toolbox, and I would like to praise NASS for continuing this important initiative,” said Scott Schwab, NASS President and Kansas Secretary of State.
NASS’s nonpartisan #TrustedInfo2024 effort directs voters to election officials’ websites, social media pages, and other public facing materials for information on each step of the election process—from registration, voting, to post-election procedures.
“The mission of #TrustedInfo2024 is to communicate to the American people that they should always turn to state and local election officials for reliable, timely information,” said Steve Simon, NASS President-Elect and Minnesota Secretary of State. “Rapidly advancing technology using artificial intelligence will likely allow for more convincing false information and increase how fast incorrect information spreads. I encourage voters to do their part by only sharing credible information from our offices with their communities. And when in doubt, contact us or your local election administrator.”
Since its initial introduction in November 2019 as #TrustedInfo2020, the #TrustedInfo initiative has received acclaim from numerous non-profit, private sector and government organizations.
