Partial Recount in Afghanistan

After allegations of voter fraud, Afghanistan's Electoral Complaints Commission has ordered a partial recount of the ballots in Afghanistan's August 20 presidential election. The commission, which has received 2,000 complaints since the election, ordered the recount because of "clear and convincing evidence of fraud in a number of polling stations." The recount will take place in polling stations where over 600 votes were cast, where voter turnout reached 100 percent, or where one candidate received 95 percent or more if the number of votes exceeded 100.
