WASHINGTON, DC – Ahead of the 2020 general election, Democracy International is partnering with the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) to help promote their #TrustedInfo2020 initative, a year-long voter education effort.
The goal of #TrustedInfo2020 is to communicate to the American people that election officials are their trusted sources for credible and accurate election information. By directing voters to election officials’ websites and social media pages, it will not only ensure voters are getting election information in a timely manner, but will also cut down on the misinformation and disinformation that can surround elections.
“Having Democracy International as #TrustedInfo2020 partner helps amplify state and local election officials as the trusted sources for election information. During this unprecedented time, my colleagues and I are constantly seeking ways to increase voter education, outreach and awareness. We appreciate DI and look forward to working together on this,” said Maggie Toulouse Oliver, NASS President and New Mexico Secretary of State.
“As an organization that works on supporting democratic elections globally, DI appreciates the work NASS is doing to highlight credible voices in U.S. elections,” said Eric Bjornlund, DI President.
