WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

With local and general elections just one month away, many are wondering how safe the electronic voting systems are.
This comes after issues in some states like Arizona and Illinois.
Congressman Mac Thornberry was in Wichita Falls Thursday visiting the Rotary Club.
He believes outside groups or countries might be trying to put doubt in the U.S. election process.
    "We've got to be vigilant in Texas, as do the other states to make sure that we are practicing the top cyber security that technology can provide," Congressman Thornberry said. "Because this is such an important, basic part of our democracy, having confidence in your vote."
Congressman Thornberry adds that hackers can't mess up a nationwide election because electronic voting systems are ran state by state.
