Polls close on Election Day with no apparent cyber interference

  • After years of planning and worry, polls closed on Election Day 2020 without the country’s having seen any substantial public cyberattack.
  • It’s impossible to state for sure how much the lack of an apparent cyberattack was due to successful planning, a lack of a serious attempt from a dedicated adversary or pre-emptive cyberattacks from U.S. Cyber Command.
  • While polls appeared to have closed without a major hitch, CISA cautioned that the window for hackers to affect the perception of the election’s integrity could be open for weeks.
