MADISON - Wisconsin elections officials are putting together a formal security plan in advance of next fall's election.
The Wisconsin Elections Commission plans to work together with federal, state and local elections officials on the plan to prevent any security breaches.
The move comes as federal investigators, and the Senate Judiciary Committee, investigate Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
Wisconsin election officials have repeatedly said there were no indications that state elections had been tampered with last year.
Wisconsin Elections Commission assistant administrator Meagan McCord Wolfe says the state is creating the security planning team to prepare for 2018 and in response to the ongoing national conversation about election security.
A draft is expected to be done in December with a final plan to be done in early 2018.

HAYWARD - Trail conditions for this year's American Birkebeiner race will be just about perfect.
Executive Director Ben Popp said there's about a six inch base, three inches of snow on top, and more snow on the way in the Hayward area.
"The energy right now is just unreal. You can feel it here in Hayward and Cable and certainly around the world. Now with a gold medal, Jessie Diggins and Kikkan Randall, brings more excitement to not only this event, but the sport. So it's a really great time to be a cross country skier," said Popp.
