State elections boards experienced an unprecedented number of cyber attacks during the 2016 elections.
Even states that managed to successfully defend their technology, processes and people had the burden of proving that their election was free and fair.
This is just the beginning of a new era in our democracy, one where state election boards will be thrust onto the front lines of cyber warfare.
