Florida Supervisors of Elections and Secretary of State Laurel M. Lee Join NASS in #TrustedInfo2022 Voter Education Effort
In preparation of the 2022 midterm elections, Florida Supervisors of Elections (FSE) and Florida Secretary of State Laurel M. Lee join the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) in the #TrustedInfo2022 education effort to promote state and local election officials as the trusted sources for election information.
“The biggest threat to our democracy is election misinformation, disinformation, and malinformation (MDM) that undermines voter confidence in the integrity of our elections,” states Wesley Wilcox, Marion County Supervisor of Elections and Florida Supervisors of Elections President. “Florida voters can be confident that our elections are accurate and conducted with the highest levels of integrity and transparency in our nation. We are committed to ensuring voters have access to accurate election information during the 2022 election cycle and beyond.”
“The spread of misinformation and disinformation to influence voters and interfere with elections is a key concern,” said Secretary of State Laurel M. Lee. “We are grateful to be partnering with NASS and the Florida Supervisors of Elections for the #TrustedInfo2022 campaign to ensure that voters in Florida know that we are THE trusted sources for elections information.”
Together, their goal is to ensure the integrity of Florida’s elections and to support fair, honest, and accurate elections in the State of Florida. As elections professionals, they want to highlight their committment to being the official trusted sources of election-related information in Florida. While there is a lot of information about voting and elections on the internet and social media, not all of it is credible. Your local Supervisor of Election’s offices and the Florida Department of State will remain the credible, verified source for election information. Many election officials will use the #TrustedInfo2022 to flag official election information on social media and other sites.
