Election Day in Liberia

Wow, Rob Blair is even more cynical than me.
Seen in this light, the “massive turnout” that the newspapers are reporting this morning starts to seem disenchanting. To the extent that turnout is driven by campaign promises, more voters may mean more disillusionment and less communal collective action down the line.
Definitely worth reading the rest of his report from Election Day in Liberia on Chris Blattman's Blog.
