United Nations-affiliated election monitors from Europe and central Asia will be at polling places around the U.S. looking for voter suppression activities by conservative groups, a concern raised by civil rights groups during a meeting this week. The intervention has drawn criticism from a prominent conservative-leaning group combating election fraud.
The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), a United Nations partner on democratization and human rights projects, will deploy 44 observers from its human rights office around the country on Election Day to monitor an array of activities, including potential disputes at polling places. It's part of a broader observation mission that will send out an additional 80 to 90 members of parliament from nearly 30 countries.
Liberal-leaning civil rights groups met with representatives from the OSCE this week to raise their fears about what they say are systematic efforts to suppress minority voters likely to vote for President Obama.
The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the NAACP and the ACLU, among other groups, warned this month in a letter to Daan Everts, a senior official with OSCE, of a coordinated political effort to disenfranchise millions of Americans particularly traditionally disenfranchised groups like minorities.
The request for foreign monitoring of election sites drew a strong rebuke from Catherine Engelbrecht, founder and president of True the Vote, a conservative-leaning group seeking to crack down on election fraud.
These activist groups sought assistance not from American sources, but from the United Nations, she said in a statement to The Hill. The United Nations has no jurisdiction over American elections.

Massive Voter Fraud in NC
UPDATE on Oct. 21, 2012 74 MORE 112 year olds voted on Saturday, bringing the total to 832 votes.
It may be a computer programming problem, or some other such thing .....
Based on my experience the UN is fraud itself. High corrupt salaries, drug use, contraband sales, rampant sex abuse.....don’t come to my polling place!
...and if a U.N. Puke approaches you at the Polling Place tell them to get the **** out and go back to their outhouse country.
Nothing more than a ploy to rally the liberal base. The only legitimate voter intimidation incident was by Obama supporting thugs, not the right.
Can I punch one of these UN observers in the face???
Will they be wearing blue helmets?
Should be quite “interesting” down here in the Republic of Texas, if they show up.
Good luck finding one. There are only 40 of them to cover all 57 states.
“There are only 40 of them to cover all 57 states.”
This is just a bon-bon observation team. They will sit in an expensive hotel eating bon-bons, probably paid for by US taxpayers. After the election, they will say whatever David Axelrod tells them to say.
The 0_tard is looking for a means for a legal dispute of the election when he looses.
He will not go quietly. Despots never do.
What should happen is that he goes and then is tried, sentenced and put in jail. What he has done to this nation is not only wrong, it is criminally wrong.
He took an oath to protect and defend the constitution. At every step he has acted to overturn and ignore the rule of law. He has supported our enemies and punished our allies. It is Treason. Open subversion of the U.S.
It would be nice if Holder was made his cell mate for same time.
They’ll actually probably be too busy hiring child prostitutes from Craigslist ads to do any observing of any elections.
