Exercising Democracy

Voter registration in Afghanistan;

Gawhar, a Kabul University student, said her nephew has been approached several times at high school to sell his voter ID card. She also knows a Kabul woman who travelled to Laghman province and in two days obtained 40 cards by wearing a burqa and opting to provide her thumbprint rather than a photo.

A woman in Kabul is going to vote 40 times? I am kind of speechless, an unusual situation for a weblogger i know. There must be some kind of witty joke to tell. When do voter registrations in Iraq begin?

Cheers corey.
