From Politico:

A coalition of ideologically diverse groups on Thursday released a report examining the election security needs of five states that concluded the federal government has a long way to go on properly funding vital safeguards during the pandemic. “What Congress has provided so far is not enough to run safe and secure elections in 2020,” reads the report from the Alliance for Securing Democracy, the Brennan Center for Justice, Pitt Cyber and R Street Institute. “Our review shows that the March 27 grants will likely cover anywhere from less than 10 percent of what Georgia officials need to around 18 percent of what Ohio officials need.” Congress has devoted $400 million for elections in coronavirus aid thus far.
