Florida’s election system is under daily attack, Florida’s chief election official conceded Tuesday, but the state has employed what she called an “unprecedented” program of training, assessment and evaluations designed to address the weaknesses before harm is done.

“Every single day, domestic actors and foreign actors attempt to penetrate our Department of State networks and the networks of supervisors of elections around our state,’’ Lee said. “So it is critical that we have been able to develop and implement this type of partnership.”
