A "exceptionally small number of them", she added, "were actually successfully penetrated".

Both measures are stalled in Congress, worrying some lawmakers that states' election systems won't be protected in time for the upcoming midterm elections. "We can take steps we can take but this is something that, once they decide they are going to do it, it's very hard to preempt it", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told Fox News.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis), chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said the "scattered" jurisdiction poses risks to the country.

Russians targeted 21 states' voter registration rolls during the 2016 presidential election.

But officials stressed that there's no evidence the voter rolls were changed.

In the report, U.S. Customs and Border Protection identified a broad cross-section of Sunni Muslim residents as being potentially "vulnerable to terrorist narratives". He said that electoral systems were "critical infrastructure", and as vulnerable to outside attacks as power grids.

It was not clear which state rolls had been hacked into.

Manfra disagreed with Johnson's statement and said that all states have taken the threat of hacking seriously. It detailed how hackers connected to Russian military intelligence had attempted to breach USA voting systems days before the election.

"It's problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system because democracy is only as good as the people trust in results", Bush said, according to The Independent. "Whether they affected the outcome (of the election) is another question, but they meddled, and that's unsafe for democracy".

Special counsel Robert Mueller has stepped up his investigation into possible collusion between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russians in the election.

"The Russian government has made a project of turning Americans against each other". Until the truth is known about the Trump/Russia relationship, and Russia's role in the 2016 election, Trump will occupy the White House under a cloud of illegitimacy.
