Terrifying: US Voter Lists Accessed by Russia and Iran. Here’s what they do to them.

In an attempt to intervene in the 2020 election, Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe said on Wednesday that both Russia and Iran have obtained U.S. voter registration information.

“We would like to alert the public that we have identified that two foreign actors — Iran and Russia — have taken specific actions to influence public opinion relating to our elections,” Ratcliffe warned.

“We have confirmed that some voter registration information has been obtained by Iran, and separately, by Russia,” he added. “This data can be used by foreign actors to attempt to communicate false information to registered voters that they hope will cause confusion, sow chaos, and undermine your confidence in American democracy.”
