SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — Fifteen California counties were affected by connectivity issues with the state’s voter registration database, the Secretary of State’s office said early Tuesday afternoon.

The counties affected were:

  • El Dorado
  • Fresno
  • Madera
  • Merced
  • Napa
  • Sacramento
  • San Luis Obispo

In a response sent to FOX40 shortly before 1:30 p.m., the Secretary of State’s Office said all counties have restored their connection, and there was “no evidence of malicious activity.”
