NPR's Pam Fessler reports on the first congressional hearing into electoral reform since the contested Presidential election five months ago. The House Administration Committee heard from five secretaries of state, officials responsible for voting procedures. They testified that equipment needs to be modernized, voters should be better educated in voting procedures, poll-workers should be trained better, and higher standards should be set for conducting elections and recounts.
