Organization of American States: Anti-Democracy Specialists?

Who are these OAS people, and why does their ID card system shtick sound just like the Republican shtick of the last American election?

Organization of American States technicians have created a database of voters and high-tech ID cards. Election workers at roughly 800 voting centers will have a printout showing the voter's name and photo. And fingerprinting will prevent people from voting twice.

OAS. Let's just say I'm very leery of any 'democracy organization' based in Washington, DC.

UPDATE: Been wondering if Wyclef was busy on the Haiti front. Seems so. Check out Wyclef's charity, Yéle Haiti.

Elections on the 8th (Tuesday). Cross your fingers.
