The Election Commission deserves a ton of praise. Though there was a sizable line when I arrived on Thursday, I believe the wait was less than 20 minutes. It was a VERY efficient process.

HATS OFF to the entire election staff & volunteers. Everyone was super helpfull & very professional. Short wait to do something only a few % of the people in the world get to do - VOTE.
