Keeping you and your votes safe
With the 2016 election hacks fresh on the mind of voters, some in North Central Florida are wondering what is being done to make sure their information and safety is taken care of at the polls.
With software and training, Levy County Supervisor of Elections Tammy Jones says the goal is to always ensure voting safety no matter what election you're voting in.
Jones says money from the state's budget has been especially useful in preparation of this upcoming election.
"Staff training is important because when you're dealing with phishing and you know you always have to worry about the links you click on and attatchments in your email, so thats been really ramped up in most counties I believe is staff training," said Jones.
Florida was also the first state to implement the Albert Server which helps detect threats and address them.
"Going forward I think thats an assurance to us supervisors to have that in place to be notified that theres someting going on thats suspicious," said Jones.
