Are the US presidential elections free and fair?

With just days to go before the vote: that's a question that many are asking, in a country that preaches democracy.

In a country which US presidents and Vice presidents are elected through an indirect vote, in which citizens cast their ballots for members of what's called an electoral college: Doesn't that make the process undemocratic?

We'll be asking our guests their views on this, and additionally ask them why one state has threatened to prosecute an int. observer group if they entered polling stations.
