An edgy America has been warned by its president that the coming election will be “rigged” and “fraudulent.” U.S. intelligence and congressional sources say nefarious foreign sources are seeking a redux of the 2016 interference, with FBI Director Christopher Wray specifically naming Russia this week. And there has been widespread media speculation that a winner in the presidential race may not be known for days, or even weeks, after the Nov. 3 election.

Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson, Indiana’s chief election officer, tells Howey Politics Indiana that she has confidence in the process, both in Indiana and nationally. She said in response to written questions from HPI that foreign actors have “scanned” the state’s election systems but likened it to a “burglar rattling doorknobs.”
