US vote counting unaffected by cyberattacks, officials say

Ballot box generic

WASHINGTON (AP) — No digital intrusions are known to have affected the counting of the midterm vote.

Officials on Election Day kept close watch for domestic and foreign threats.

A few state and local governments appeared to have been hit by a relatively rudimentary form of cyberattack that periodically made public websites unreachable. But U.S. and local officials say none of those attacks breached vote-counting infrastructure.

An official at the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency says there was no known activity “that should cause anyone to question the security, the integrity or the resilience of the election.”
