Election Security Update: Top 18 Most Vulnerable States
United States. Congress. House. Committee on House Administration
"It is now well-known that Russian hackers targeted voter registration databases in at least 21 states and attempted to access credentials of election technology vendors and election officials. If these attacks had succeeded, hackers could have deleted voter registration records, altered poll books, caused chaos on Election Day, and potentially swayed the results of the election. Moreover, the Intelligence Community has warned that foreign actors will likely continue to seek to interfere in our elections. In May, Secretary of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen said, 'We see [Russia] continuing to conduct foreign influence campaigns.' In June, Robert Mueller echoed this finding, stating in a court filing that foreign 'individuals and entities' are continuing to 'engage in interference operations.' In light of the ongoing threat of foreign interference in our nation's elections, Congress appropriated $380 million in March 2018 to the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) for distribution to states to enhance election security. [...] This report looks at the eighteen states with the most vulnerable election infrastructure and assesses: 1) whether they have requested the EAC grant money; 2) how the state plans on spending the grant money; and 3) whether the state's response is sufficient given the threats and vulnerabilities it is facing."
