Legislative committee looks at trust fund to maintain voting systems

LANDER (WNE) –- The Wyoming Legislature will look at a measure to create a trust fund to maintain its voting systems going forward.

The 2016 election saw an unprecedented number of attempts to interfere with states’ voting systems, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Wyoming was not among the 21 states that reported attempted hacking, but election security experts warned regional lawmakers recently that the Cowboy State could be a target for nefarious actors looking to undermine confidence in the American democratic process.
