The British Section of Pax Christi has sent journalist Paul Donovan to be an observer at the US election process in Florida, a State at the centre of disputes in the 2000 elections.
A delegation of international observers arrived in the US on Sunday to be trained as monitors and then placed on site in four Florida counties: Miami-Dade, Broward, West Palm Beach and Duval, to help to ensure free and fair elections.
It follows concerns, expressed by former President Jimmy Carter and others, about the electoral process there.

It also promotes the option of nonviolence as means of resolving conflict and providins peace education materials and programmes.
