photoElection Day looms, and there's debate and excitement about fresh new faces and, maybe, an upset in Congress.

But beneath all that, there lurks a fear. Fear that in tight races across the country outcomes could be determined not by votes but by problems — with new technology, with registration, with voter ID.

This hour On Point: A week and a day before the midterms, we're looking at the validity of the American vote.

Sean Greene, Director of Research at "electionline.org";
Mark Crispin Miller, Professor of Culture and Communication at New York University and author of "Fooled Again: How the Right Stole the 2004 Election and Why They'll Steal the Next One Too"John Fund, Columnist for The Wall Street Journal and author of "Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy.";
