Making News Taking Stock of Superstorm Sandy 7 MIN, 32 SEC

Millions of Americans are feeling the brunt of one of the worst storms ever to strike the East Coast. Sandy is making its way across Pennsylvania toward Canada, after leaving a trail of destruction and death along the East Coast. We survey the damage, especially in lower Manhattan, where high winds and flooding have taken a serious toll.  How long will power out for millions of people?  Has Sandy demonstrated the vulnerability of the Grid? What about transportation — from flooded subways to international air travel?

Main Topic Could Voting Machines Steal the Election? 32 MIN, 18 SEC

In the year 2000, "hanging chads" on Florida's paper ballots put the presidential election in doubt. Two years later, Congress passed the Help America Vote Act, or HAVA, which provided federal subsidies for states to buy electronic voting machines that don't use paper at all. Dispute is raging over what it could mean for the integrity of next week's election. Both campaigns and many political pundits say Ohio could decide the election.  How secure are its voting machines?
