As U.S. democracy faces a moment of truth, there are lessons to be learned from how elections are conducted and secured in other countries. Lindsay Langholz speaks this week with Ann Ravel, former FEC Commissioner, who has served as an election observer and expert in a number of countries. They delve into how other countries prevent voter suppression and ensure more gender and racial representation.
