    Accusations of voter fraud and voter disenfranchisement have flown back and forth between the right and left for the past few elections, and the arrival of an international election monitoring body in the U.S. ahead of the November 6th election hasn’t seem to calm the tension. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot warned one group of international monitors they would face arrest for coming within 100 feet of a polling place.

    That group is The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), who have monitored elections in 56 countries and observed American elections for a decade. We talk with Ambassador Daan Everts, OSCE’s head of mission for the Observation of General Elections in the United States, about the organization's mission and reception during this election season.
