Senior U.S. officials responsible for the integrity of the presidential election have said there's no evidence that any votes were deleted or lost, or that the poll was in any way compromised.
President Donald Trump has repeatedly spoken of fraud and errors, and is still refusing to acknowledge that he lost to Joe Biden.
From Washington, the BBC's Lebo Diseko reports.
The Department of Homeland Security says the November 3 election was the most secure in American history.
A statement noted there were many false claims and misinformation but it continued, "We have the utmost confidence in the integrity of our elections and you should too."
Earlier, former President Barack Obama said false claims of electoral fraud were motivated by Donald Trump's dislike of losing.
"They appear to be motivated in part because the president doesn't like to lose and never admits loss. I'm more troubled by the fact that other Republican officials, who clearly know better, are going along with this, are humoring him in this fashion. It is one more step in delegitimizing not just the incoming Biden administration, but democracy generally."
