Under a process known as "card check," unions sometimes become the exclusive representative of all employees in a workplace without an election. A similar process was widely used for political contests in the 1800s, but all U.S. states and numerous Western democracies banned it, because it enabled activists to intimidate citizens. Federal law also bans this process for internal union elections.
