In the Afghan presidential election on October 9, 2004, Hamid “Karzai won 55 percent of the vote against more than a dozen other candidates in a reasonably fair election. Eight million Afghans voted, a more than 70 percent voter turnout, a rate not seen in any American presidential election since 1900.”
