Today, Mitchell holds a Round Table discussion to look at voting systems in the U.S.  How good and accurate are they?  Are there better approaches to reduce fraud or inaccuracies?  Accurate voting is a pillar of Democracy.  Today's show will look at what the White House has known through one of our guests, voting expert Brent Turner,  and what has been ignored by the upper echelons of our government and leaders.
