Maine's election systems were not targeted by attempted hackers during the 2016 election, according to a press release from the Maine Secretary of State. Most of the hacks were not successful, though it's not clear which states got fucked.

The department is working with members of the National Association of Secretaries of State, as well as other chief election officials across the nation, to improve communication protocols regarding voting system security in the future, it said.

The Department of Homeland Security confirmed it had notified the 21 states but declined to identify them Friday.

Federal authorities have told officials in Washington that Russian hackers unsuccessfully tried to access election systems in the state prior to the 2016 general election.

State election officials are demanding a $12,500 fee.

The office earlier has said it had no knowledge of its election systems being targeted.

The move comes as federal investigators and the Senate Judiciary Committee investigate Russia's involvement in the 2016 presidential election.
