Just Click: The Night before the Election

At 5 AM, ballots will be delivered to polls in sealed boxes.  Citizen poll workers, political party election watchers, and national and international election observers will begin their work as El Salvador conducts a presidential election.  Here are some final pre-election images from around the capital city...

Voting centers popped up on Thursday.  The centers are run by the
political parties and are located near to the polling places.

Each party typically has a center at each polling site for the purpose
of assisting voters in finding where they are registered to vote.

Party flags are permitted.  Party flags with an X through them are not.
The X signifies "vote this way."
