Irony: U.N. Poll Watchers Baffled U.S. Does Not Require ID to Vote

There was some concern expressed before the election regarding U.N. poll watchers being allowed to observe our voting process here in the U.S.

It’s very ironic that after Election Day, some of them are baffled that many states (unlike Virginia) do not require voter identification.


The most often noted difference between American elections among the visitors was that in most U.S. states, voters need no identification. Voters can also vote by mail, sometimes online, and there’s often no way to know if one person has voted several times under different names, unlike in some Arab countries, where voters ink their fingers when casting their ballots.
