Keepin' It Real In The Voting Booths

By now, we're all familiar with the allegations of voter fraud and "voting irregularities" in several states during the 2000 and 2004 elections. To this day, Florida is still the butt of voting jokes. Ohio was another state that had issues. Current polls show that the margin of victory in this year's election may be just as narrow as in 2000, so all ears and eyes are attuned... to make sure there aren't any voting irregularity repeats. And people are especially paying attention to swing states like Ohio. Today, we'll be joined by Ohio's secretary of state, Jennifer Brunner, who will tell us how the state has prepared for the election on November 4th.
