More than 90% of registered voters cast ballots in Tunisia's first national elections since independence, officials said.
"The polling stations registered a turnout rate of more than 90%," said Boubaker Bethabet, secretary-general of the Independent High Authority for the Election.
Workers have begun manually counting the votes, with final results expected Tuesday afternoon.
The manual-counting method "requires time," Bethabet told the official Tunisia News Agency. "It is carried out twice by two distinct teams. The obtained results are then compared to ensure greater accuracy."
Polls closed late Sunday in the country
All 100% of me voted on a second bowl of ice cream. The vote was unanamous. By the way.....first!!!

Well , I wipe from back to front, then I 'll wipe from front to back. But mostly I enjoy when I wipe from side to side hehehe.I call it Bareassburn. hahaha.
I'd thank you to quit using my name to post your senseless crap under!!! CNN should really block all these mindless comments here but most of all, yours!!!!!!
Why haven't we heard about the 7.2 earthquake in Turkey?
Would that we could get a 90% voter turnout in this country.
Tunisia seems to really becoming a true sucucess story. A very good example of a people can effect change. Congradulations Tunisia.
Good morning banasy. How are you today ?
Any more news on chrissy?
Now if we can get 90% turnout in America. Great job Tunsinia!
Let's hope this election does not remove women the right to vote, to be elected to parliament, to earn equal wages, and to initiate divorce.
I'm puzzled as to how you got that idea; women's rights in Tunisia are far ahead than those in USA and some Europeen countries. No elections will ever overturn that.
TOO bad America... you barely push 50 because Rupert has your minds in a zombie VICE grip...
"you hate politics" is your "youth agenda banner" that failed a failed RUMSFELD military....
So then have no politics.... is a true COWBOY agenda
