Friday, December 24th, 2010
All we want for Christmas is higher voter turnout in the United States. This man was so excited about democratic elections in Chile he shows up to the polls dressed as Santa! If only we could be so thrilled by our democracy. Below are the details from Reuters.
Rigoberto Martinez, dressed as Santa Claus, rings a bell while voting in a voting booth in a public school during municipal elections in Valparaiso city, about 75 miles (120 km) northwest of Santiago, October 26, 2008. Martinez said he has dressed as Santa Claus in all elections since the return to democracy in 1990 from the 17-year dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet.
