A stack of voting materials sits on my desk, waiting for me to wade through and choose who and what to vote for on or before Tuesday. I need to decide if I want to retain judges, raise taxes for local schools, re-elect incumbents or put my confidence in new candidates. While all this is time-consuming, it's also a privilege.
Speaking of elections, Nigeria has moved its 2011 Presidential one to April, 2011 (originally scheduled for January 22, 2011). It's all a bit complicated, given that the sitting President hasn't filled an entire term and his opponents claim that he isn't eligible to run for another term. Whatever the outcome, I pray for a peaceful transition or retention of power on May 29, 2011.
