We take a dive into election security with Ruben Major for California’s Secretary of State. This is how Russian hackers are trying to stop your vote from being counted and how they can use provisional ballots to change an election outcome. Also discussed: the homeless voting, what are California Voting Centers, and what Russian hackers did and plan to do again.
