State Voter Registration System Hacked

The Illinois Board of Elections says the state voter registration system was hacked earlier this summer.  Officials believe the personal information of around 200-thousand voters could have been accessed by hackers.  The cyber attack began in June and board staff became aware of the security breach in July.  The FBI says they uncovered evidence that a similar data breach was recently pulled off in Arizona.
