Both voters and candidates are calling yesterday's elections in Haiti invalid, citing widespread fraud. Twelve of the nineteen presidential candidates held a press conference yesterday afternoon calling for the vote to be canceled, and protesters took to the streets after scores of complaints from those whose names did not appear on the rolls at polling stations were unable to vote.

We speak with Jacqueline Charles, Caribbean correspondent for the The Miami Herald.
