BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger is acknowledging that the state’s election systems were targeted by hackers last year, but giving few details.

Jaeger says the state was notified Friday by the Department of Homeland Security that North Dakota was among 21 states targeted last summer.

Jaeger says the state’s systems were not breached. He says the state continually updates its cybersecurity protections as new ways of targeting are identified.
