Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted questions recent move by the DHS

Worries about hacking and cybercrime resulted in the federal Department of Homeland Security naming voting machines and elections systems around the country as “critical infrastructure”, and therefore eligible for more federal help to protect them. But Ohio secretary of state Jon Husted has some concerns. Husted said he’s not sure what this designation from Homeland Security means – and whether it gives the federal government authority to do something that it didn’t have power to do before. So he wants information in writing. He notes that President-Elect Trump’s Homeland Security department could overrule it.
