Someone at the Department of Homeland Security apparently tried to hack into West Virginia election records, according to a press release from Secretary of State-elect Mac Warner.

Investigators found that the same computer user who tried to hack into Georgia voter registration data also tried to get information from Kentucky and West Virginia, the press release said.

“I will be calling for the Trump administration to look into the activity related to elections systems by DHS not only in West Virginia but also other states,” Warner said. “The security and integrity of our voter registration database is directly associated with the security and integrity of our elections.

“Upon taking office, this issue will be at the top of our list to investigate and respond appropriately. The DHS holds a responsibility to be transparent with the hacking details, objective and intent of action with the information.”
