Voting in Afghanistan

Watching the election process in Afghanistan.
Not a lot that separates the candidates who ran;
Most would like a U.S. presence; all of them are men.
Even once they count the votes, won't know the winner then.

I get so embarrassed by the voters in those lines,
Knowing that they're facing more than people waving signs,
They are risking life and limb to go and cast their vote...
I know people who don't go if they can't find their coat.
