Irish election monitors called on to observe US mid-terms

The State is to send a team of election observers to monitor the US mid-term congressional elections in November, reversing its previous position that it did not focus on monitoring the conduct of democratic elections in the EU, the US or Canada.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has written to its team of Irish election observers, who volunteer for deployment across the world to ensure elections are fair and transparent, seeking volunteers to serve on the US mission in October and November.

The department maintains a roster of Irish observers who participate in election missions primarily organised by the European Union and the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).
