Governor Tim Walz and Secretary of State Steve Simon are welcoming policymakers and national experts to a two-day election security workshop at the State Capitol starting today (TUE). Simon says we know there are bad actors who want to interfere with our elections…

“When I hear that coming out of our intelligence agencies, I know that we can’t let our guard down and we won’t. So I think on the infrastructure side, meaning the system, the polling places, etcetera, we’ve really got to be on our guard and top of our game and we are.”

In addition, Secretary Simon says voters need to be aware of misinformation and fake news that foreign entities put into social media to try and sway opinions.
