Onondaga Co. Elections partner hacked by Russians report says – WSYR9

Dustin Czarny says there was no piece of the election here however impacted in any way by this hack.

“Election security is of the upmost importance to the Board and we believe our safeguards in place prevented anything from happening and we have no indication that anything did happen.”  Czarny says.

He adds that the electronic voter lookups have been used the past few years at eight large polling sites in Onondaga County to help reduce the waiting time for voters who need help finding their election districts when they show up to a site.

Czarny says, “None of our voting machines are hooked up to the internet, these things were not hooked up to the internet as well they weren’t WiFi capable and all of the transfer of date happened via flash drives.”
