One of those tools is our Playbook for Trusted Elections. Driven by nearly one year of dedicated election trust experiments and research, the Playbook is intended to serve those working in and around the election space with the critical data-driven communications recommendations and research-backed misinformation mitigation strategies they need to reach Americans.
