polling centers

Kabul, Oct 7 – Here’s a follow-up our previous analysis map which compares the 2009 Polling Centers the IEC says opened and the 2010 Polling Centers it planned to open. The map below updates the information with data on which polling centers actually opened: the shade of the province illustrates the number of polling centers opened (the scale is at the bottom right-hand corner) while the size of the circle reflects the numbers of polling centers which had been planned to open but remained closed. Gray circles indicate those provinces where all the planned centers opened.

Kabul, Oct 7 – We’ve just released an updated interactive map illustrating the provinces where polling centers didn’t open. The map shows how much the IEC had to scale back its plans to open polling centers in the north of the country, as well as in the troubled province of Ghazni in the center of the country.
