Election Day

The only topic of conversation these days is the election and today is the day.  All is quiet out here but folks tell me that there are problems at the voting stations between supporters of the various candidates or with the election process itself.  No real violence that I've heard of but lots of shoving and name-calling.  Sound familiar? Authorities are nervous about reactions of the people so school has been cancelled for tomorrow.
There will probably be a run-off as the winner must have 50% of the vote.  Quite a challenge when there are so many candidates.
