Astonished foreign officials think the way the US votes is puzzling11/7/2012
When you think about it, voting in a U.S. election requires a lot of trust. Unsurprisingly, our system has astounded foreign observers from 60 countries who are here for four days to take part in seminars with the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES). That we manage to hold binding elections without, in most states, requiring identification or official oversight (i.e. independent observers, security) are only a few of the many oddities that officials say would be impossible in their countries. Observers also noted that voting was much more complicated in the U.S., where we vote on all manner of offices and referendums, while most countries simply vote on president and parliament. [Source]
