Now that is fraud

The Washington Post has an article — Irregularities Mar Nigerian Elections that discusses the current state elections in Nigeria. The first paragraph says,

Nigerians chose state leaders Saturday in elections meant to help ensure democratic rule, but ballot-stuffing and other irregularities were on open display in the oil-producing south, where violence left more than a dozen people dead.

It goes on to say, Balloting unfolded relatively peacefully in most parts of the country of 140 million people, even as many waited for ho urs in front of polling stations that opened late, with faulty voter-registration rolls. In the United States we get excited when a polling place opens late or there is a glitch tabulating the ballots. Here, fraud is out in the open and people are getting killed. It reminds us that we should be so lucky to have the problems that we have with our electoral system.
