Trump vs Biden: US election officials declare position on results
United States election security officials have stated that the 2020 presidential election was the most secure in American history.
The Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council Executive Committee (GCC) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) made the declaration in a joint statement.
The bodies within the Department of Homeland Security worked on protecting U.S. voting systems.
They noted that there is no proof to buttress claims that the November 3 poll was compromised.
The statement said there is no evidence that any voting system deleted, lost, or changed votes.
The agencies added that when states have close elections, many will recount ballots.
GCC and CISA said states with close results have paper records of each vote, allowing the ability to go back and count each ballot if necessary.
“This is an added benefit for security and resilience. This process allows for the identification and correction of any mistakes or errors. There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.
“While we know there are many unfounded claims and opportunities for misinformation about the process of our elections, we can assure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our elections, and you should too,” the statement read.
