Mis-, Dis- and Malinformation Planning and Incident Response Guide for Election Officials


Back to Training & Resources

State, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) election officials can take proactive steps to prepare for and respond to the threats of misinformation, disinformation, and malinformation (MDM). This guide is intended to help election officials understand, prepare for, and respond to MDM threats that may impact the ability to conduct elections.

This document was created as part of the Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council and Subsector Coordinating Council’s Joint Mis/Disinformation Working Group. This document is intended to be used by state, local, tribal, and territorial election officials, and industry partners as part of a larger mis-, dis-, and malinformation (MDM) response strategy. SLTT election officials should consult with their legal officer and other necessary officials in their jurisdiction prior to creating an MDM response program.
