The top state election officials from throughout the US are gathering this weekend in amid fresh revelations of Russia's interference in the 2016

The annual gathering has typically been a low-key affair highlighting such things as voter registration and balloting devices. This year's meetings are generating far greater interest.

The conference is sandwiched between Friday's indictments of 12 Russian military intelligence officers alleged to have hacked into and campaign accounts, and Donald Trump's long-awaited meeting on Monday with Russian
