ATLANTA (AP) - Carter Center officials say they’re planning to monitor upcoming elections in a South American nation.

Officials from the Carter Center said in a statement Thursday that they’re going to observe the May 11 election in Guyana. Officials say the Guyanese government has invited the Carter Center to monitor the race.

Officials say a team of experts will meet with Guyanese elections officials, candidates, civil organizations, citizens and others to gauge the nation’s preparation for the election, campaigning, voter education and more.

Officials say former President Jimmy Carter will help assess the nation’s voting and ballot counting process.
