WASHINGTON (AP) _ Election monitors from a European-rights
watchdog organization say Tuesday's U.S. elections met acceptable
The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe says, however, that U.S. authorities should fix some flaws in the election system.
Ambassador Audrey Glover, the British diplomat who headed the delegation, says the elections ``displayed all the fundamentals of
a genuinely democratic vote.''
The group says U.S. authorities should improve voting secrecy at some polling stations. Its report says some ballot-scan procedures undermined voters' ability to keep their choices secret.
The report also notes that the decentralized U.S. system has widespread inconsistencies in its procedures.
