[ARCHIVED] Jeffco's Deputy Chief Clerk observes Uzbekistan Election

Group of Uzbekistan poll workers stand in a line with Peg Perl, Jeffco's Deputy Chief Clerk

The nonpartisan international organization, OSCE, observes elections worldwide to report on their transparency and security. Most northern-hemisphere countries are members of the OSCE, including the US, and they deploy election officials to every major election in member countries.

Peg Perl, our Chief Deputy Clerk & Recorder, was chosen by the US Department of State to help oversee the recent Uzbekistan election earlier this month. Costs were all covered by the Federal Government to send her to Namangan, which is near the Kyrgyzstan border. She and her fellow delegates reviewed the set up process, voting, counting, and reporting of results--which went well into the wee hours of the morning like it does here! They also checked on voting protections, accessibility for voters with disabilities or different languages, and how all of it complied with local laws.

Curious about what they found? Check out their mission page!
