Wisconsin officials want to launch a public relations push to reassure people that elections are secure.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission staffers plan to ask the panel Tuesday for permission to spend $260,000 to develop website information, videos, news releases and graphics.

A survey conducted by advertising firm KW2 for the commission this fall found many respondents were worried about cyber-attacks, absentee ballots not getting counted and vote machine tampering.

The commission would use a $7 million federal grant to bolster election security to pay for the outreach campaign.
