The blogosphere lit up, saying this has huge implications for upcoming elections.
But Collier and Lee County election officials say that"s not possible because there's a paper trail.
"Paper ballots are reviewed and compared with totals that are given per the voting machine and that's done at an open public meeting," said Tim Durham, Collier County Chief Department Supervisor of Elections.
Officials we spoke to say that when you come to vote, you put your ballot in the machine. And that information is then recorded in a totally separate spot from where the hacked information was kept.
"Tabulation is in a separate network all by itself and it doesn't talk to anything but itself," said Lee County Elections Systems Admin Wayne Magin.
"Even within our own office, only selected individuals have access to the sensitive areas," Durham added.
As it turns out, the stolen data was from a Liberty County Election Office. A hole in the online contractor's security system let the hacker in.
