The people of the United States are committed to free and fair elections. Virtually all federal, state and local elections employ computer-based technologies to manage voter-registration data, record votes and tally ballots. Many of these systems suffer from software and physical security flaws that could allow criminals or dedicated foreign adversaries to disrupt voting processes or alter the public’s faith in election results.
The Department of Homeland Security has designated election infrastructure as a critical infrastructure, but because state and local jurisdictions plan and carry out elections, governors and secretaries of state are responsible for ensuring that they are secure against tampering.
