    Voter registration closed in Virginia yesterday as the Commonwealth prepares to elect a new governor and legislature next month. Could this be a bellwether for next year’s midterms offering a referendum on Trump?

    On this episode of "Fault Lines," experts join hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan to discuss whether it's too late to prevent another war in the Middle East. This as the Iraqi military seizes a strategic base and oil fields from Kurds near Kirkuk in what the Kurds are calling "a declaration of war."

    Garland and Lee will also welcome guests to discuss whether US elections are fair, open, secure, and an accurate reflection of the electorate. Does our system let voters vote? Does it count the votes accurately? Is voting too hard, too easy, or just right?

    The hosts and guests will analyze top news stories and issues including top Democrats' threats to shut down the Federal Government over Trump's "sabotage" of the Affordable Care Act and immigration rights. Also on the agenda: the US government actions against Kaspersky cyber security software, Trump's decision not to certify the Multi-Party Iran Nuclear Deal, and tensions with North Korea.

    Scheduled guests include: Logan Churchwell — Communications & Research Director at the Public Interest Legal Foundation; Andrea Miller — Former Congressional Candidate and Executive Director of People Demanding Action; Dominic Carter — Political Reporter for Verizon Fios News; Kani Xulam — Director of the American Kurdish Information Network (AKIN); Paul Kawika Martin — Peace Action Senior Director for Policy and Political Affairs; and Jeffrey Carr — Cyber Security Consultant.
