UPDATED 11:279AM PT – Thursday, September 24, 2020
FBI Director Christopher Wray said the bureau has not seen any evidence of widespread voter fraud. He made the comments during a Senate hearing Thursday.
The director continued by saying the FBI takes all threats seriously. Wray said the agency is being vigilant and will investigate any potential threats to the elections.
He also said although they have not seen any coordinated voter fraud on a national level, it doesn’t minimize their responsibilities.
“We have not seen historically any kind of coordinated national voter fraud effort in a major election, whether it’s by mail or otherwise,” he stated. “We have seen voter fraud at the local level from time to time.”
