Turkmenistan Votes

RFE-RL has a special report on Turkmenistan's "elections.", in which not many people voted and most of those who did didn't care. That tends to happen when there are no opposition candidates in your totalitarian police state. According to Jonathan Edelstein, voters even got a free copy of the Rukhnama. I guess incentive programs just don't work anymore.
