What is #TrustedInfo?
#TrustedInfo is a social media campaign designed to remind voters that state and local election officials are the authoritative sources for election information.
Voters have a right to accurate and timely information. With misinformation and disinformation running rampant on social media and other platforms, it is important for voters to know who to trust. The mission of #TrustedInfo is to communicate with the American people that local and state election officials are their FIRST and TRUSTED sources for election information.
Election officials around the country use #TrustedInfo to highlight the importance of choosing direct, reliable information sources.
#TrustedInfo was first used in 2020 and is spearheaded by the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) and endorsed by the National Association of State Election Directors (NASED), the Oklahoma State Election Board, as well as other organizations including the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
The Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), a division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, is also an excellent source of trusted information. Learn more about CISA's Election Security resources.
