  1. The polling station near my home opened at exactly 06hrs but I was on the queue from 04hrs. I was able to vote peacefully a few minutes after 06hrs.

  2. Even where I am it is so crowded. There are thirteen 13 queues, all grouped in alphabetical setup stretching as long as 500 metres.
    This is what intelligent voters do: come in hordes and beat a confusing rerun.
