Local Election Officials Working to Mitigate Potential Threats

Oregon election officials last week tried to overcome hacking attempts, power failures and other problems that could threaten the integrity of the state’s vote-by-mail election system.

But it was just a drill – a tabletop exercise with the Department of Homeland Security.

It’s the second time the state’s participated in such a program, in an effort to mitigate threats to national elections.

This year the exercise was specific to threats against our vote-by-mail system.

Central Oregon Daily’s Brooke Snavely has the story.
