POLITICS: US Election Officials Not Keen on Advice from Switzerland

Swiss computer specialist Beat Fehr wanted to export Switzerland’s voting system to the United States to make US elections much more reliable. The Americans weren't keen on his advice.

He is convinced that the Swiss voting system would work in the US, although he concedes it is a little late in the day for November’s presidential race.

“About two months ago we sent more than 1,500 emails to election officials in the US but only got one or two responses,” Fehr told newswire Swissinfo.

Undaunted, he is pressing on with his ideas. “We can wait and make changes after the election,” he added.

Fehr argues that he could save the Americans millions of dollars, as well as promote confidence among voters that the elections are secret and secure.

What is Mr. Fehr's comment regarding the involvement of the OSCE comission and its Swiss president Ms. Haering? How about former president Jimmy Carter's assessment of the voting situation in Florida? Is Mr. Fehr aware at all that he's not the sole player on that field? And would he please tell us clearly what his improvements are alle about?!

Switzerland always wants to offer its "Good Services". Problem is, they are, in fact, often not that good anymore and are seen by other nations - especially the U.S. - as imposing or even arrogant. Mr. Fehr's "I know better, but I'll only tell you if you pay me" approach won't work here.
