İrem UZUN -TDO- U.S. election officials have said the 2020 White House vote was the "most secure in American history", rejecting President Donald Trump's fraud claims. "There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised," a committee announced.
The statement came after Trump once again claimed on Twitter that an election equipment maker “deleted” 2.7 million votes for him nationwide. “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,” said the statement issued by the Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council, a public-private umbrella group. The statement's authors include the presidents of federal and state election bodies.
President-Elect Joe Biden has 290 electoral votes to Trump’s 217. Biden on Thursday won 11 more electoral votes when he won from Arizona, consolidating his lead from 279 to 290. Trump and his team seek to halt the vote count in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Arizona until they can have partisan poll watchers inspecting the voting process to ensure illegal ballots are not counted.
