The 2020 United States presidential election was “the safest in American history”, according to an official statement released on Thursday (12) by senior officials of the Cyber Security and Infrastructure Agency. The agency is linked to the Department of Homeland Security, which is part of the US government itself.
“The November 3 election was the safest in American history. Right now, across the country, election officials are reviewing and verifying the entire election process before finalizing the result,” the statement said.
The statement contradicts the claims of President Donald Trump, a Republican candidate who does not accept defeat in the attempt for reelection and insists that there has been fraud in the country. Democrat Joe Biden was declared the winner of the race according to projections of institutes that have been working in the American elections for decades.
Still according to the document, “there is no evidence that any voting system excluded or lost votes, altered votes or was in any way compromised”, contrary to what Trump says.
Some Republicans advocate Biden’s access to information needed for the transition
“While we know that there are many unfounded complaints and opportunities for disinformation about the process of our elections, we can assure you that we have the greatest confidence in the security and integrity of our elections, and so should you,” added officials in their statement.
“When in doubt, turn to election officials as trusted voices when administering elections,” they wrote.
Officials who sign the statement form the Governmental Electoral Infrastructure Coordination Council, a group of electoral administrators and federal agencies responsible for overseeing electoral security in the United States.
Last week, even before the projections gave victory to Biden, the Organization of American States (OAS) – which monitors electoral processes across the continent – had already stated that the American election took place without major irregularities.

Although Trump’s allies insist on not recognizing Biden’s victory, some Republican politicians admit that the president-elect should have access to national security documents with a transition already in view.
Government officials need to allow data transfer to begin, but Trump has yet to signal. The Republican’s hope is that some of the various lawsuits against the electoral system in the states will reverse the outcome that gave Biden victory.
Some Republican Party politicians have moved away from Trump and already see Biden as the elected president. This is the case with the governors of Ohio and New Hampshire, who ask supporters to be realistic about the ballot response.
