The group that monitors elections for the Helsinki Accords has issued a report on the 2010 election in the United States. See it here. It includes 27 pages of text. International human rights observers tend to notice deficiencies in U.S. ballot access laws during presidential election years, but they tend to miss it in mid-term years. The report says nothing about ballot access laws. However, it criticizes the U.S. for failing to give voting representatives in Congress to citizens who live in the District of Columbia and the overseas possessions. It also criticizes the U.S. for disenfranchising felons in almost all states, and ex-felons in many states. And, it criticizes the many instancees when minor party and independent candidates were excluded from general election debates. Thanks to law professor Jurij Toplak of Slovenia for the link.
