    On today's BradCast we cover what is known, so far, about the terror attacks in Brussels, which took place last morning, even as they serve as yet another reminder of why elections matter.

    With ISIS now claiming responsibility for the horrific attacks which killed dozens and injured hundreds in Belgium, including a number of Americans, Iraq war correspondent Michael Ware's recent account of the creation of ISIS, thanks to the U.S.-launched war there over a decade ago, underscores how the choices we make at the ballot box reverberate for generations.

    Vote wisely! If you are able to vote at all…Our coverage of the problems faced by voters merely trying to cast a vote during last week's primaries continues today, with new reports of Photo ID voter suppression in North Carolina, student voters illegally turned away at Wheaton College in Illinois, and the continuing court battle over thousands of voters turned away from the polls in Adams County (though we have a small slice of encouraging news to report there today!)

    Then, we turn to new problems and serious concerns beginning to emerge in primaries and caucuses underway today in Arizona and Utah, including reports of up to four-hour lines and registration problems in Arizona and the Republican Party in UT laughing in the face of computer scientist warnings by using some 60,000 of their voters as guinea pigs during in a live experiment with 100% unverifiable and easily hackable Internet Voting for tonight's GOP caucuses! (What could possibly go wrong?)
