@John the Baptist: Election day is a national holiday, so for the masses at least, they do not need to wait until after 5 pm.

This is crazy, it is supposed to be the election schedule, not a government office timing. In all civilised countries, voting is allowed til much later to make sure everyone can get a hence to vote after finishing heir normal day of work.
