Keep checking - I will be adding to this post as I find relevant information on the Iraqi elections.
This is a historical moment in history....a people subjected to tyranny and oppression for decades are breaking free and on the road to democracy. Sorry if that sounds melodramatic, but it IS pretty dadgum dramatic. Here's what I've found so far:
Baghdad Dweller has comments from Iraqi's worldwide and what they've gone through to vote.
Friends of Democracy has live election news in English. They will be posting voter turonout info here as it becomes available.
This website has info for Iraqi Ex-Patriots living elsewhere to vote in their resident countries.
Iraq Election Diatribe is a blog devoted to election items and news and has some very interesting poll results from Iraqi's regarding the upcoming elections.
The AP has a surprisingly even-handed account of some Iraqis' opinions of the elections and what they hope to achieve through them.
The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has issued these election videos to promote the elections in Iraq. Worth your time for viewing! (hat tip to my buddy at American Conservative Blog for the link)
MORE: Hill Country News has a link to this article at The Moderate Voice regarding the elections. Great point of view!
