The Indiana Secretary of State's Office says Indiana was not one of 21 states targeted by Russian hacking attempts during the 2016 election. Most of the hacks were not successful, though it's not clear which states got fucked.

Earlier this week, the state's budget writers approved diverting money from an unused election account to spend an additional $1.2 million to upgrade the office's cybersecurity measures for its voter registration system and business database.

As of Friday afternoon, officials from at least Connecticut, Illinois, Washington and Wisconsin reported they had been notified of hacking attempts.

Oklahoma Election Board spokesman Bryan Dean says U.S. Department of Homeland Security officials notified the state Friday that Oklahoma was one of the targeted states. The state was pinpointed "by entities acting at the behest of the Russian government leading up to the 2016 election", Simon wrote. "This was a scan and many computer systems are regularly scanned". The move comes as federal investigators, and the Senate Judiciary Committee, investigate Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Wisconsin elections officials are putting together a formal security plan in advance of next fall's election.

Washington state was not hit in that effort, which involved a private corporation that provided election services for some states, the Secretary of State's Office has said. After his win, Trump created a commission headed by Vice President Mike Pence to investigate voter fraud nationwide. That commission has requested information on voters from every state, including Wisconsin, and posed a series of questions about the security of elections in the state. Republican Gov. Scott Walker is expected to seek a third term and Democratic U.S. Sen.
