Senior US federal and state election officials said Thursday that there was “ no evidence ” that votes were lost or changed, or voting systems corrupted, in the presidential election.
The officials, responsible for election security across the country, rejected claims made by President Donald Trump and Republicans that fraud and lost ballots led to his loss to Democrat Joe Biden in last week’s election.
“ The November 3 rd election was the most secure in American history, ” they said in a statement.
“ There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised, ” they said.
“ 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. ”
