It is interesting that the following story is never reported by the mainstream media.

It argues that the UN's election monitering team was overwhelmed at the level of trust that is at the center of America's electoral process. How could this be the case when most progressives, i.e. Democrats, argue that the American electoral system is intentionally disenfranchising many possible voters? The suspician is that most of the so called "disenfrancised" voters are really part of the 80 million registered voters who did not care enough to vote in the 2012 election.
It is impossible to figure out a system to get them to vote. Requireing them to vote, may work, but it rejects America's values of freedom of thought and action. This should teach Americans that having to show a picture identification does not prevent anyone from voting.
