Since false claims were made about the integrity of the 2020 presidential election, the security of the election process has been a hot topic of debate. Shameless claims about widespread voter fraud often target minority voters, specifically Latino and Black voters.
Despite the talk, voter fraud in the U.S. is extremely rare as the process is protected by strong checks every step of the way.
The authentication and ballot counting process can vary depending on how the vote was cast: in person or by mail. Some states allow for pre-processing of absentee and mail-in ballots, while others wait until election night to start tallying.
But no matter where or how you voted in 2022, you can be sure that there were multiple security layers in place to verify the accuracy of your ballot. The election was safe and secure.
