Global Totals: Voting in Zimbabwe

Zimbabweans are voting for president, parliament, and local councils today. Current President Robert Mugabe, 84, is up for reelection amid controversy that voting will be fair. Mugabe insists he is fighting a legitimate contest saying, "why should I cheat? The people are there supporting us. The moment the people stop supporting you, then that's the moment you should quit politics."

Among other red flags in this election are an additional 3 million printed paper ballots above the number of actual voters, as well as "ghost voters" and "ghost polling stations" allegedly uncovered by one of Mugabe's competitors. Even if Mugabe overcomes those charges and wins today, he returns to work in a country facing an official inflation level of 100,580.2 percent, and an unemployment level that is above 80 percent.

I think we have some readers from Zimbabwe — please tell us what you saw today! Do you think the elections were fair?
