Who does the governing?

One aspect of information governance is who’s in charge?  Who “governs,” and how?

“Scrutiny Of Voting Procedures Set to Soar,” The Wall Street Journal, October 27, 2016 A4.  We could guess that a lot of folks would want to observe the US election process to make sure everything’s kosher.  You’d guess a bunch of state authorities, the Department of Justice, and the various political parties and their respective surrogates. But the Organization of American States (40) and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (500+ observers) were invited by the State Department.

Why?  What role do they have?  Do they own the process?  Do they report to someone who owns the process? (“They” could mean the OAS, the OSCE, or the State Department).
