Reuters picks a quote from Martine van Bijlert's AAN election primers:

"Afghanistan's electoral system is so badly hampered by fraud, insecurity, and institutional weakness that there is no effective way of knowing what the 'true' vote is," the Afghanistan Analysts Network said in a research note this week.


It said that estimates of the number of voters range from 10 to 12 million, but some 21 million voter cards have been issued.
