The state is getting $7 million from the federal government to help protect election records from hackers.
Spokesman Reid Magney of the Elections Commission says their statewide registration system has to be connected to the Internet, because municipal clerks around the state need to access it. He says they’ve been working for the last two years to make it as secure as possible.
Magney says they’re not as concerned about individual voter machines. He says they generate paper ballots, or records, of every vote.
