Florida was one of 21 states that had its election systems targeted by Russian actors in 2016.

Governor Ron DeSantis says voter data was stolen in 2016 when election systems in two Florida counties were hacked. Previous reporters had identified only one county, but DeSantis says  the breach didn’t impact voting.
