CBus, the first nine words in this thread are "News reports that 60% of eligible voters turned out ..."
Mind you, I don't think the turnout's all that important. First off, third world nations routinely get great turnout. So it's hard to know whether 60% represents a wild success for election organizers or for the forces trying to suppress the vote.
Second, and much more critical, is who gets elected and what they do once empowered. If they create a Shi'a constitutional theocracy then we won't be smiling about this election in the future.
