Voting with Enthusiasm

By Julian Dierkes

There was a lot of enthusiasm on display early on June 24 as the polls opened.

Expressions of enthusiasm built in part on the very active өглөө campaign that had been part of a bring-out-the-youth-vote effort.

The general aim to mobilize young voters was paired with a resurgent fashion interest in the deel that also ended up being much in evidence online.

Below is a gallery of some of my favourite posts from the day. I note that for some of these the origin of the photo and thus the identity of original photographers is unclar.
