Iraqi security officials to set decoy polls

[JURIST] In an effort to weed out insurgents and increase voter safety, Iraqi security officials have said they will use decoy polling stations during Sunday's national election. Iraqi Army Major Hamid Al Jubarah said, "We will have decoy voter centres, so those who want to bomb won’t know which ones are real." The UK Press Association has more. The Independent Election Commission of Iraq provides local information on voting and election procedures.
