Local Level Election

It's so funny that I went with Tolga and his family to vote this morning. You know, I've never participated in an election. Hahahahaa at least not in my country. I supported Obama in the US Election 2009 and witnessed in person today ;)

The title is local level election because voters stamp for their ideal candidate to run their city/district/neighbourhood. Good thing it's over now because I can't stand the party banners and flags. Wind in Istanbul is so strong, they are usually blown all over the place or fallen.

Hehehehe it was held in the public school down our street which was great because we just walked there. Roads were pretty jammed up today. Other districts could have theirs in public schools or any public institution that can accomodate the population of that area. Tolga's parents stopped here and there for a chat whenever they bumped into neighbour friends.
