Exemplary democratic election process in rural areas of Nicaragua

Tortilla con Sal, November 6th 2016

These photos are from the election process in two voting centers in the rural area of Santa Cruz, about 15km south of Estelí on the Carretera Panamericana. Santa Cruz consists of over 30 rural hamlets and communities in beautiful hill country. Here we found local activists helping elderly neighbours and people with disability get to their voting station. The flow of people arriving vote was slow but steady and when we arrived at about 10.00am around 20% of people eligible to vote had already done so. Officers at the voting stations siad they expected more people to vote after church services are over later in the morning and also later in the afternoon.
