Secretary of State launches ‘Vote with Confidence’ campaign

In advance of the Nov. 8 General Election, the Office of the Secretary of State has launched the “Vote with Confidence” awareness campaign to inform voters of election security measures and debunk election misinformation.

This campaign includes both traditional advertising — which has begun appearing statewide in newspapers, on television, and on city buses — and community-based partnerships with organizations helping to get out the vote.

In a news conference earlier this month, Secretary of State Steve Hobbs said, “We’re going to do our part to inform the voters of what happens here in Washington state ... to reach people in their communities to assure them elections are secure, accessible, and transparent.”

To learn more about Washington state’s election security, visit the Secretary of State’s Elections webpage or contact a local county elections office
