Election Observer: Major Changes Needed, No Matter Who Wins

by

Speaking on Common Cause’s final election briefing of the day, Bob Pastor, who has observed elections in Nicaragua, Liberia, Palestine and China, said he hopes Congress gets the message that our democratic processes here in the US need a major overhaul no matter what happens. “We need to fix the system in definitive ways or else the problems will repeat themselves,” he said, mentioning problems with the registration system and the means of identifying voters. Common Cause supports same-day registration, among many other measures.
