How Easy Was It to Commit Voting Fraud in Haiti's Election?

More

The man on the far left in the blue shirt, wearing the backpack, is Rony Gachelin, a Haitian-American who served as translator for our photographer Julie Dermansky. This footage shows him approaching the table, taking a ballot, and bringing it to the voting booth--despite the fact that he is not registered to vote in Haiti. (Had Gachelin actually voted, he would have committed fraud. Instead, we see him folding up the ballot and taking it home as a souvenir.)
