Georgia's Carter Center to observe US Election for 1st time

ATLANTA (AP) — David Carroll has been working with the Carter Center observing and monitoring elections in Third World countries for 30 years.

In each of the 111 observations in 39 countries, a few things consistently stick out.

Deep ideological polarization. Ethnic and racial divisions. Little confidence in election integrity. Results not accepted.

Sounds like America, 2020.

As the country barrels toward one of the most contentious elections in American history, already dripping with tension about the whole voting process, the Atlanta-based Carter Center is taking the unprecedented step to get involved in U.S. elections.

“The characteristics of politics on this country are not unlike what we see in other countries,” Carroll said. “Those are the types of things we see in countries where democracy is really struggling.”

4. The Carter Center

See: https://www.cartercenter.org/

It's actually the world's Carter Center:

Our Mission

The Carter Center is guided by the principles of our Founders, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter. Founded, in partnership with Emory University, on a fundamental commitment to human rights and the alleviation of human suffering, the Center seeks to prevent and resolve conflicts, enhance freedom and democracy, and improve health:

• The Center believes that people can improve their own lives when provided with the necessary skills, knowledge, and access to resources.

• The Center emphasizes action and measurable results in the lives of the people it seeks to help.

• The Center values the courage to break new ground, fill vacuums, and address the most difficult problems in the most difficult situations.

• The Center recognizes that solving difficult problems requires careful analysis, relentless persistence, and the recognition that failure is an acceptable risk.

• The Center is non‐partisan and it seeks to work collaboratively with other organizations from the highest levels of government to local communities.

We've contributed to them for many years and it's a great international charity.

Thank you President Carter and First Lady Rosalynn for all you do for humanity.

KY........
