Illinois U.S. Senator Not Confident State’s Voting System Is Secure
Dick Durbin, a U.S. Senator from Illinois, is worried that the election process is not safe from hacking in his state.
After everything that has been said about the Russians interfering with the last presidential race in the United States, online security has been a huge issue.
Some high ranking officials don't think enough has been done about it including one from our home state.
According to sj-r.com,
"In wake of the indictment of 12 Russian agents for allegedly hacking into state election voting systems during the 2016 presidential election, U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin said he is not confident Illinois’ systems are secure heading into the 2018 midterm elections."
Senator Durbin has stated that the Illinois Board of Elections has given him assurances that everything is secure and safe but it sounds like he might not believe them.
He believes Congress needs to do extra to find out what happened and to prevent more security breaches in the future.
The Russians and many others are working non-stop to break into our systems.
If the U.S. Senator has doubts and speaking out about it, I'm definitely worried.
