What if they held an election and everybody came?

Mongolia recently held elections and the resident Communist Party suffered huge losses, to the point that they may be out of power. But the truly remarkable part is that their election had an 80% voter turnout!

Thanks to The Marmot for the story, and to Simon for pointing it out.

Thanks Ted...good to know that someone is reading the Asia by blog series. I'd be interested if you had any thoughts on making it better.
