Worried about the fairness of the upcoming U.S. presidential election, several House members have asked the United Nations to "deploy election observers" across the country.

Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson

Recalling the contentious Florida vote count in 2000, the lawmakers urged the international body to "ensure free and fair elections in America," said a statement by Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Texas, who spearheaded the effort, Agence France-Presse reported.

The letter was signed by nine members of Congress.

"As lawmakers, we must assure the people of America that our nation will not experience the nightmare of the 2000 presidential election," Johnson said in the letter, according to AFP.

"This is the first step in making sure that history does not repeat itself," she added.
