There has been no evidence of "malicious cyber activity" in the 14 Super Tuesday elections, a senior Department of Homeland Security official told reporters Tuesday night.
"We don't have any reports of any malicious cyber activity across the states [Tuesday]," the senior official at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) said, The Hill reported.
Among some "sporadic" information technology (IT) issues, the California secretary of state's website crashed due to "higher than normal traffic," but it was not related to hacking, the official told The Hill.
CISA was hosting a national cybersecurity awareness war room to track election meddling threats and the official said there were "more opportunities to learn and continue to improve" the election systems before November, according to the report.
CISA Director Christopher Krebs issued a warning before Super Tuesday about potential disinformation threats.
"Our departments and agencies are working together in an unprecedented level of commitment and effort to protect our elections and to counter malign foreign influence, but voters have a role to play too," the statement read, per the report.
