Bright & Early: Rockin’ The Vote Edition

Good morning, Nashville. This weekend, Nashville will be one of the nine polling places for the Iraqi parliamentary election. Because Nashville has the largest Kurdish populations in the United States, we were chosen to host one of the polling sites and Iraqi nationals will be traveling into town from all over the southeastern US to cast their votes. Their election sounds way more confusing than ours, however, as there are 6,172 candidates representing 240 political parties and they’re all fighting for 325 Iraqi Council of Representatives seats. Yikes.
