After Election, Disinformation Battle Continues


Election officials across the United States found themselves in a pitched battle Tuesday, trying to quash domestic and largely partisan efforts to take scattered voting malfunctions and cast them as evidence of a larger conspiracy targeting the 2022 midterm elections


Although the U.S. government have recently flagged attempts by actors in Russia, China, and Iran to spy on people in connection with the U.S. election, nothing on the scale of 2016 has yet to materialize.


According to Chad Wolf, acting director of the Department of Homeland Security, the agency has not seen any “indications that a foreign actor has succeeded in compromising or affecting the votes cast in this election.”
