This is the first year David Heath has traveled to the U.S. to participate in election monitoring. Heath, a member of the Parliament from Great Britain, is leading a team of international experts to check that people get a free and fair chance to vote without any irregularities. The process of election monitoring has occurred since 1990 and it recently began in the U.S., Heath said. Heath also discusses what issues in the U.S. presidential election interest the people of Great Britain.
