The most often noted difference between American elections among the visitors was that in most U.S. states, voters need no identification. Voters can also vote by mail, sometimes online, and there's often no way to know if one person has voted several times under different names, unlike in some Arab countries, where voters ink their fingers when casting their ballots.

The international visitors also noted that there's no police at U.S. polling stations. In foreign countries, police at polling places are viewed as signs of security; in the United States they are sometimes seen as intimidating.

    The first common sense point I've ever heard from them. Some parties find it more convenient not to prevent duplicate and illegal voting.

    Even Mexico requires voter ID. Without it you don't vote. Most civilized countries require it, but then they don't have the liberal cheaters making the rules.
    Mexican ID

    Several friends on twitter were denied their right to vote because someone had already voted for them. These were in key states such as Colorado and Virginia. Makes me wonder how many other people were similarly turned away.

    As much as I hate the UN and think they are corrupt, useless, and cause more problems than they ever solve, in this case I agree with them. The United States needs voter ID and we need it NOW. If voter ID is racist than so are drivers licenses.

    They just never say how. I find it difficult to believe that in the four years since the last election, someone who needed an ID could not find a neighbor, a church, a charity, a bus, a trolley, a bicycle, some way to get to wherever to get some form of picture ID. It's always the same lame blame - it will suppress the vote. It's a crock.

    It is a state issue.
    Ohio has that requirement ,they ask for a valid driver license and or a utility paid bill in your name.
    So it is a state decision .
    And it should be mandatory for all states

    I was upset that my polling station didn't want my ID...even if they did know me!
    I know that the argument against Voter ID is that it is racist. I don't think the UN is wrong on this one though...
    Holder was quoted as saying, "some are genetically unable to vote"...?what?
    Why didn't he just say "they're illegal Mexican's who don't have papers?" *smh* and that in itself voided the argument. The opponents cannot even intelligibly argue against it!!
    There is no good reason NOT to show photo ID!

    That's right! The only reason someone would not want to show an ID is if they were hiding something. But what do you expect when our president refused to show HIS ID before he ran for president and the morons in this country let him get away with it?

    Clearly all the countries in the world are racist.

    They actually check your ID before voting.

    I thought liberals thought the world was cool but the US was crazy?
