Washington (Associated Press)-A coalition of federal and state officials said on Thursday that they had no evidence that the vote was compromised or changed in last week’s presidential election, rejecting the general proposal of President Donald Trump and many of his supporters Unproven claims of fraud.
The statement issued by government and industry officials coordinating election cybersecurity trumpeted that the November 3 election was the safest election in American history. This is the most direct denial that Trump has made so far to undermine the integrity of the game, and echoes the repeated assertions made by election experts and state officials last week that the election went smoothly without extensive violations.
The statement said: “Although we are aware of many unfounded claims and opportunities for misinformation regarding the election process, we can assure you that we have the greatest confidence in the security and integrity of the election and you should do the same. “If you have any questions, please seek trust from election officials during the election management process. “
It is distributed by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (Cyber A few hours ago, he became the subject of a Reuters story, saying that he had told colleagues that he expected to be fired by Trump. Krebs has been screaming on Twitter to make Americans repeatedly reassure the United States that the election is safe and their votes will be counted.
He wrote: “America, we also have full confidence in the safety of your vote.”
The authors of the statement said that they have no evidence that any voting system has deleted or lost votes, changed votes or was compromised in any way. They said that all states that achieved close results have paper records so that each ballot can be recounted if necessary and “identify and correct any mistakes or mistakes.”
“The November 3 election is the safest election in American history. Currently, nationwide, election officials are reviewing and carefully reviewing the entire election process before finalizing the results.”
This information is in stark contrast to Trump’s inability to claim fraud and widespread problems, which he insists may affect the total number of votes.
The issues pointed out by the Trump campaign and its allies are typical in every election: signatures, confidential envelopes and postmark issues on mailed ballots, and the possibility of a small number of ballots being misfilled or missing. With the key battlefield state Democrat Joe Biden (Joe Biden) leading Trump by a large margin, none of these issues will have any impact on the election results.
Trump’s campaign also raised legal challenges, complaining that their opinion observers were unable to review voting procedures. The judge has overcome many challenges, some of which were completed within a few hours of filing the application. Similarly, there are no complaints showing any evidence that the election results were affected.
The authors of the statement include the presidents of the National Association of State Returning Officers and the National Association of State Secretaries, which are elected at the state level, and the executive committee of the government industry coordination committee, which includes all major voting equipment suppliers. .
