In 2016, the intelligence community sounded the alarm that our elections had been targeted with cyberattacks by Russian state actors with the intent of usurping American voters’ voices and assisting their preferred candidates. Infiltration of numerous states’ voter databases has been confirmed. Today, our nation’s electronic voting systems remain vulnerable to cyberattacks which threaten the integrity of our democracy. A lack of federal action means there is a strong role for nonpartisan advocates to play throughout the next few months.
The good news is that securing our elections does not have to be a moon-shot. Verification of paper ballots, increasing cyber security defenses, and other common-sense solutions have been implemented in many states. It is imperative that this momentum continues.
