Although President Donald Trump and members of his administration continue to cite a purportedly fraudulent electoral process as the reason for Joe Biden’s Election Night win last week, a Department of Homeland Security agency has deemed that the 2020 vote was secure on a historical level.
On Thursday, DHS’ Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued a joint statement from the Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council (GCC) and the Election Infrastructure Sector Coordinating Council (SCC) opining that there is no evidence that voting systems were compromised in any way.
“The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history,” the statement declared.
CISA’s release affirmed that states that had close results in the presidential race have the ability to recount ballots. It further suggested that all of those states will have paper records of every vote, which will allow officials the ability to hand count each ballot again, if necessary.
