Top federal officials said Thursday (November 12) there was no evidence that votes were compromised in the 2020 general election, adding that it was the "most secure" in history. High-ranking leaders with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, which is part of the Department of Homeland Security, debunked any claims of voter fraud in this year's election cycle.
"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. “When you have questions, turn to elections officials as trusted voices as they administer elections.”
President Donald Trump has long touted claims of voter fraud and tried discrediting mail-in voting leading up to Election Day (November 3). The weekend following that Tuesday, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris claimed a historic victory over the 45th president and Vice President Mike Pence.
Election officials across every state also confirmed that there was no evidence of voter fraud earlier this week, according to the New York Times. They reported “remarkable success despite record turnout and the complications of a dangerous pandemic.” Both Democrats and Republicans have also affirmed the legitimacy of the presidential election outcome.
Trump's campaign has launched multiple lawsuits to combat election results in several states, including battleground Pennsylvania and Michigan, but most courts have tossed out the legal challenges.
