NEWSLINK: Russian observers to be literally knocking on doors of US polling stations
Itar-Tass reports how Russian would-be election observers, despite avoiding Texas, still intend to try to visit U.S. polling stations for the U.S. election:
Russian observers will be literally “knocking on the doors of the polling stations” at the US presidential elections on Tuesday, State Duma deputy and member of the State Duma committee for security and counteraction to corruption Ilya Kostunov told Itar-Tass on Monday.
He and several other Russian observers Olga Alimova, Sergei Chizhov, Eduard Markin and Oganes Oganyan are members of the US election monitoring mission from the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
“On Tuesday we will be literally knocking on the doors of the polling stations and will be asking to let us in,” Kostunov said, adding that they “have no certificates of observers.”
The unofficial “observers” apparently have a stronger interest in “swing states”.
