Donald Trump's Poll-Watching Talk Spurs Call for International Monitors of U.S. Election

NBC News reports:
Citing Donald Trump's controversial call to his supporters to challenge voters at the polls, a leading civil rights group is urging international election monitors to beef up their efforts to observe this November's U.S. presidential contest.

It's the latest reflection of deep concern among voting rights advocates about potential voter intimidation and suppression this fall.

In a letter sent Saturday, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights asked the Warsaw, Poland-based Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to "greatly expand" its U.S. election monitoring program.
