South Carolina Election Commission Director Marci Andino told commissioners at their monthly meeting Wednesday that reports of 150,000 attempts to access the state voter database last November was overblown.
“Those were not Russian hackers attempting to get access to the system,” Andino said. “The hits come from various different sources and a lot of that could be bots or just bad traffic, so we wanted to make it clear that that was not attempts to hack the system.”
