Potential corruption in Iraqi polling

Iraq the Model is reporting of violence interrupting campaigning, this time in Kurdistan. He wonders of potential polling corruption in areas of Iraq.

This is simply the necessity of a democracy: Policing Polling.

It is a much-preferred trade off to futility in the face of torture and brutal dictatorship.

Not sure I believe that a necessity of democracy is the policing of polling places - it is a necessity of societies that do not value individual liberty and choice - and unfortunately, that remains a component of the cultural and systemic growth required in Iraq.
