It takes a group effort to make sure our elections are secure–that’s the big takeaway from Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon after a two-day workshop at the State Capitol on cybersecurity.

“And it requires a whole of government response, our office, as the Secretary of State’s office takes the lead role in many respects but it really touches so many others, obviously the governor’s office, what’s called MNIT, which is central sort of IT office in the state, the National Guard.”

Simon says Minnesota is fortunate in that all of the key players working on election security are on the same page–and committed to making our election system as secure as possible.
