Oregon Secretary of State to Fight Misinformation
The Trusted Info 2022 Campaign includes public service announcements

According to Secretary of State Shemia Fagan, "False election information is a growing problem in Oregon and around the country." She has launched a new initiative to -- in her words -- “prebunk” false information by "getting accurate information in front of voters before they are exposed to misinformation."

“Our best tool in the fight against false information is true information,” said Secretary of State Shemia Fagan. “We are committed to reaching Oregon voters early and often so the first thing they hear about Oregon elections is the truth.” Fagan has been under fire for politicizing the office of the Secretary of State and for failing to provide statutorily required voter information in a timely manner following redistricting.

Trusted Info 2022 is part of a national effort led by the National Association of Secretaries of State. In Oregon, the campaign will include:

1. Public service announcements done in partnership with Happylucky, a Portland-based design firm. These include animated videos, radio spots, and graphics for print and social media in the five commonly spoken languages in Oregon.

The first public service announcement on closed primaries has been produced. The second public service announcement on the postmark rule will be available by April 26, the day before ballots are mailed.



2. Updates to Oregonvotes.gov, focusing on providing plain language information on how elections in Oregon work and debunking common myths. This information is included in a new Election Information section on the website.

3. Social media campaign designed to reach voters with accurate information in easy to understand and easy to share formats. You can find follow this campaign on the Election Division’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

Funding for the project was provided by the Legislature as part of an election modernization fund, repurposed in the 2022 legislative session.
