The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) announced the launch of the 2022 Election Toolkit. The online resource provides local television and radio broadcasters with ideas and information to cover the 2022 local, state and federal elections.
The 2022 Election Toolkit provides assets to help broadcasters serve their communities in the lead-up to Election Day on November 8. The toolkit includes information on identifying false statements online, suggested tactics for hosting debates, voter registration resources and guides for finding local polling places. Broadcast-ready public service announcements encouraging voter participation are also available in both English and Spanish through the toolkit.
“Local broadcasters are a trusted and reliable source of news and information, which takes on heightened importance in combatting disinformation as Americans exercise their right to vote,” said NAB President and CEO Curtis LeGeyt. “The toolkit will equip radio and television stations in helping voters make informed decisions at the polls – an essential component in ensuring the vitality of our democracy.”
NAB is encouraging broadcasters to share examples of debate offerings, civic news coverage and voter education public service efforts by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
