The National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) have weighed in on the integrity of elections this cycle with a press release. These are the chief election officials in the administration of elections. The key parts of the press release are below:
The members of the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) cannot allow unsubstantiated claims calling into question the systemic integrity of the election process to shake voter confidence or disrupt voting in the run-up to Election Day on November 8th. With concerns about “rigging” and “hacking” elections permeating media coverage of the presidential campaigns, state election chiefs want to assure Americans that our process is fairly administered and well-secured, with built-in structural safeguards to ensure honest outcomes and accurate results.
Election officials treat allegations of fraud and election rigging – as well as voter disenfranchisement and intimidation – with the utmost seriousness. Specific instances of impropriety should be immediately reported, so that credible claims can be shared with proper authorities under law, including investigative agencies and law enforcement personnel.
