From substations to voting stations, cyberthreats plague 2016

As Americans head to the polls tomorrow, they'll entrust their votes to a complex, at times vulnerable computer network spanning hundreds of thousands of devices across all 50 states and U.S. territories. The U.S. voting system mixes cutting-edge technology with woefully outdated equipment. Parts of it are sealed off from the internet, but others rely on web connectivity. And while it's still widely considered to be reliable, the election process is facing new and formidable threats from Russia-linked hackers. In short, it's a lot like the power grid.
