The enthusiasm for tomorrow’s 2020 U.S. election is at an all-time high, and a great beacon of strength for the democracy we all hold dear.

Americans are worried about their vote being hacked, whether it be by State actors like the Russians or Iranians, who we’ve heard about recently in the news, or by other actors that the general public isn’t as familiar with. These are legitimate concerns, with many layers we need to unwrap to fully understand, appreciate and address the threat.
