The didn't "hack the election" via breaking into voting machines and altering votes. They did it by breaking into the DNC and RNC computer systems, releasing damaging information from the DNC hacks (but not the RNC hacks), and by releasing fake news stories to make the Democrats look even worse. In other words, they altered the public's view of the candidates to benefit Trump. This was enough to tilt the election in Trump's favor.
