Subject: UN MONITORING VOTING

It is being reported that representatives from the UN (United Nations) are going to be monitoring voting/polling locations through-out the country and I would like to know if any are going to be monitoring our vote by mail process here in Washington State?  If so, the citizens of this state have a right to know if this in fact is going to happen.  Please reply as soon as possible as we are only 15 days out from the election date.

 Thank You

Good evening,

I checked with our co-directors of elections and they have not heard of any international representatives coming to Washington State to monitor our elections processes.  That being said, however, it is not uncommon for international representatives to visit American states to observe elections, with the purpose of learning techniques that may be beneficial to emerging new democracies.

 

Best wishes to you,

 

Carolyn
