Former President Barack Obama in October quietly produced a plan to defend against a cyberattack during the election, including sending armed police to polling sites, Time reports.

Though the basic outline gave local governments primary jurisdiction over any attacks, Obama's White House came up with a 15-page plan of "enhanced procedures," Time reported.

In addition to sending armed federal law enforcement to polling sites, those procedures would have included mobilizing the National Guard, as well as active and reserve military forces, Time reported.

Counter-propaganda measures also would have kicked in after the election, Time reported.
