No serious incidents of voter intimidation were observed by international monitors in the US election, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) said in a report on Wednesday.

OSCE: US Presidential Run Sees Harsh Attacks, Intolerant Rhetoric by 1 Candidate
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) —According to the report, no serious incidents were observed by the IEOM [International Election Observation Mission] or reported to it.

There were also no reports of breaches or attacks on electronic voting equipment during the US election, the report added.

However, OSCE is still uncertain whether the violations observed during the 2016 US presidential election could have impacted the outcome, head of the OSCE/ODIHR election observation mission Audrey Glover told Sputnik on Wednesday.

"It's obviously difficult to say but I can imagine that the fact that certain people couldn't vote would have made some difference somewhere along the line, but how exactly I am not sure," Glover said. "Quite large number of people weren't able to vote and obviously if they had voted the result may have been different. Who can tell?"

The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) will present its final report on the 2016 presidential election in the United States in 2-3 months, head of the OSCE/ODIHR election observation mission Audrey Glover told Sputnik.

"In about two-three months time we will produce a final report with all our findings because by thatching we will have a chance to have followed up all the cases," Glover said on Wednesday. "So we will be able to get a full picture of the whole of the electoral process."
