Election Day is just a few days away, and the FBI has just issued a warning about it that every American needs to hear.
According to Daily Mail, FBI officials have warned that possible terror attacks may take place in New York, Texas, and Virginia the day before the election. A senior FBI official told CBS News that al Qaeda may be planning the attacks, but he did not specify where in the states the attacks would take place.
The official added that the threat is still being assessed at this time, but the FBI alerted local law enforcement so they could be on guard.
“The counterterrorism and homeland security communities remain vigilant and well-postured to defend against attacks here in the United States,” the source said. “The FBI, working with our federal, state and local counterparts, shares and assesses intelligence on a daily basis and will continue to work closely with law enforcement and intelligence community partners to identify and disrupt any potential threat to public safety.”
Officials are also worried that foreign hackers may conduct a cyber attack on voting systems on Election Day. To fight this threat, every state except for two have accepted help from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to probe and scan voter registration and election systems for vulnerabilities.
