Election security officials have no proof that ballots were deleted or lost by voting systems in this month’s U.S. election, 2 security groups stated in a statement released on Thursday by the lead U.S. cybersecurity firm.

” There is no proof that any voting system erased or lost votes, altered votes, or was in any way jeopardized,” the groups said about the Nov. 3 election won by Joe Biden, a Democrat.

Republican Politician President Donald Trump has actually consistently made dubious claims of electoral fraud and has yet to yield.

The groups, the Election Facilities Federal Government Coordinating Council Executive Committee (GCC) and the Election Infrastructure Sector Coordinating Council (SCC), said the election was the most secure in U.S. history.

” While we know there are numerous unfounded claims and opportunities for false information about the process of our elections, we can ensure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our elections and you must too,” the groups said in the statement released by the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Company (CISA).

CISA has drawn the ire of the Trump White House over a website it runs dubbed “Report Control” which exposes misinformation about the election, according to the three people knowledgeable about the matter.

Top U.S. cybersecurity official Christopher Krebs, who worked on safeguarding the election from hackers, has told partners he expects to be fired, sources acquainted with the matter informed Reuters.

White House officials have actually requested for material to be edited or removed that pressed back versus numerous incorrect claims about the election, including that Democrats are behind a mass election fraud scheme. CISA officials have chosen not to delete accurate details.

The security groups stated all the states with close results in the race have paper records of each vote, which can be counted if necessary.
