U.S. Political Third Parties Invite Foreign Observers to Monitor Elections
Wednesday, 22 November, 2000, Fredonia
Representatives of U.S. political third parties met today and called for monitoring of U.S. elections by observers from Bosnia, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Iran, Iraq, Kosovo, Mexico, Peru, Serbia, and South Africa, among others.
The representatives of such parties as the Libertarian, Reform, Green, Natural Lay, American Independent, Constitutionalist, and Erisian Parties called for such monitoring to ensure fair, just, and accurate political campaigns, voting, and determining results.
The party representatives appealed to observers from other countries to ensure that minority parties receive news coverage commensurate with that received by the two factions of the dominant U.S. political party, the Demopublicans. They are particularly concerned that the dominant U.S. political party, the Republicrats, unfairly and illegally wields its political and economic power to shut off access by third party representatives to news coverage and debates.
They further appealed to the observers to ensure that only those qualified to vote may vote, and that results be objectively, fairly, accurately, and uniformly determined.
The representatives further agreed that since the U.S. sends observers worldwide to monitor erections in other countries, that the U.S. Governments, national, state, and local, should welcome observers from other countries.

The "Natural Lay" Party? Where was that on the ballot?

When the voter would lay the card face down, the Natural Lay party would be seen on the other side.
