Voters queueing to cast ballot in Nairobi this morning.

According to news reports people in Kenya started lining up in the middle of the night to vote. They blew whistles and horns to rouse everyone to get out to vote and lined up in long, long lines waiting for the polls to open. This is an historic vote for Kenya, both in terms of the outcome and the aftermath. I am following reports on Twitter to get a sense of it.

Here is a photo posted on Twitter of a bird’s view of voters queueing to cast ballot in Nairobi’s Eastlands.

And here is another posted on Twitter of people lined up to vote. Incredible.

Would Canadians queue like this to vote?
