CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Election officials and candidates from across Wyoming have been briefed by the FBI on how to keep the vote secure.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports agents from the FBI's Denver office met with state and county officials in Cheyenne on Friday, discussing potential threats, ways to keep systems secure and what to do if they suspect someone is trying to hack in.

Calvin Shivers, FBI special agent in charge in Denver, said the agency doesn't believe Wyoming's systems are threatened.

Wyoming Secretary of State Ed Buchanan said state election systems are secure, noting voting machines aren't connected to the internet.

He says the training was to tell county clerks and candidates to stay vigilant and prepare them to deal with any attacks.

Buchanan said the state would conduct more training.
