Bots had a substantial impact on the 2016 presidential election, so there is no doubt they will work to influence the 2020 presidential election as well. Bots will not only work to influence public opinion but will also target the election systems themselves. Local and government agencies will need to be prepared for the multiple threats they present as not only do they pose a huge threat to the swaying people’s perceptions of candidates, but when structured as a 7-layer DDoS attack they have the ability to take down entire election systems
