WASHINGTON – Today many elections are taking place across the country at the state, local and municipal levels. As the federal agency responsible for assisting state and local election officials secure election infrastructure, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) will host an Election Operations Center. This Elections Operations Center brings together federal partners, state and local election officials, and private sector election partners to share real-time threat information. CISA stands ready to provide technical security support to the election infrastructure community.
"As many Americans make their way to the polls today, I want to express my gratitude to the election officials and poll workers who serve on the front lines to ensure the security and integrity of our democratic process," said CISA Director Jen Easterly. "CISA is proud to partner with these public servants in securing our election infrastructure. We encourage everyone to look towards your state and local election officials for the most accurate and up-to-date information about the elections process, and we ask for your patience as election officials do their jobs and carry out the certification process after polls close."
