Officials with the Arizona Secretary of State’s office said reports that hackers believed to be directed by the Russian government breached Arizona’s state election database last year were “much ado about little or nothing.”

Before the 2016 presidential election, the FBI said it uncovered information that hackers breached Arizona’s state election database in an attack that Secretary of State Michele Reagan later said likely originated in Russia.

The Department of Homeland Security informed Reagan in September that the state’s voter registration system was targeted a second time last year by possible Russian agents, but it was initially unknown whether it was actually breached.
