Most State Election Officials Lack Necessary Clearances, DHS Says

Abstract: 
The authors reveal that many election officials in individual states do not even possess the necessary clearances to tell them what cybersecurity threats that are out there that threaten the integrity of state election systems. With Russian election tampering in the headlines, it seems important that state election officials would be cognizant of the threat, yet many are unable to get basic information, and there exists no progress as of now. Key Words: Cybersecurity, elections, Homeland Security, Russia, interference
