  •  We need to call in UN observers (19+ / 0-)

    ...to assist with monitoring US elections.

    The organization has supervised and observed plebiscites, referenda and elections worldwide and increasingly focuses its electoral efforts today on providing technical assistance to help Member States build credible and sustainable national electoral systems. More than 100 countries have requested and have received UN election assistance since 1991.
    Let's give them a call.

    Electoral Assistance Division
    Department of Political Affairs

    United Nations Secretariat
    New York, NY, 10017
    United States of America

    Telephone: +1 212 963 8737
    Facsimile: +1 212 963 2979

    •  FIRST we'd have to reform the ballot system (7+ / 0-)

      so that one consistent method was used across all 50 states plus DC, territories, &c &c.

      Jimmy Carter was actually asked, a few elections ago, about the feasibility of sending in observers, and he said no way because the system was so patchwork the observers wouldn't even know what they were looking AT, let alone FOR. :-(

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!

        They recently helped Suriname with a similar national election problem.
