I'm sure others are more knowledgeable than me on the subject, but I would
think this would be a difficult thing to do, as election rules would be
different in different nations. On the flip side, election rules are
already different in the different states, so maybe it would be that big of
a deal.

I have a question in response. Are there similar organizations in other
parts of the world?
