Media Advisory: W.Va. Secretary of State Warner to speak on foreign influence in American elections at University of Charleston

Talk open to the public and set for Frankenburger Art Gallery at 7 p.m., Wednesday

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — West Virginia Secretary of State Mac Warner will speak on foreign influence in American election and efforts to protect elections in 2020 at an event at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at the University of Charleston.

The talk is open to the public and will be located in the Frankenburger Art Gallery.

Upon taking office in 2017, Warner quickly went to work focusing on election integrity and cybersecurity. His passion for transparent, fair and fraud-free elections has generated a renewed confidence in West Virginia voters.

Because of his military background and keen interest in election cybersecurity, Secretary Warner has earned West Virginia national attention as a leader in protecting voter databases and elections systems. He has teamed with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to produce the premier program to educate the American public on election security, foreign influence, and protective measures against cyber threats to elections.

Warner will be available for interviews before and after the presentation. For additional inquires, contact Deputy Press Secretary, Jennifer Gardner at [email protected], or by phone at 304-356-2616.
