Election-Blogging in Iraq

Blogger Omar of Iraq the Model has posted a full day of election-blogging from several locations around Iraq. Forget what you hear from the mainstream media reporters who are out standing in their fields. This is the real thing, straight from the citizens of Iraq.

Voter turnout?
No official figures on turnout till now but it is believed to be higher than that of January.
There's some great info and commentary there, all from the people who are busy living and breathing this brand new democracy.

I've read the turnout is 15 million+. Not bad for a country the left thinks can't handle democracy.

And an estimated 60-70% of eligible, registered voters turned out, in spite of the liberal media's constant reports of widespread fear of bombings and "insurgent" attacks. Imagine what would happen if the United States had that kind of turnout in a major election... Wow!
