Election Protection: Can The Nation's Voting System Be Trusted?

New evidence suggests the Russians hacked further into our voting system than we thought. Now, voters are asking how we can best protect a system that delivers the peaceful transfer of power. We take a look at the electoral process and how vulnerable it is to an outside attack. Our guests are Susan Greenhalgh, elections specialist for Verified Voting's initiative to protect elections in the era of cyber attacks; Trey Grayson, former secretary of state, Kentucky; Denise Merrill, secretary of state of Connecticut and president, National Association of Secretaries of State; and Matthew Masterson, chairman of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.
