    Bigger the turnout the better. I too voted this morning and the queue was so long the whole process took almost 30 minutes. And their were 4 queues like that. I have never seen such enthusiasm.

    High voter turnout is excellent news, assuming it is not caused by some jilmart. At the end of the day, if there is a high participation people cannot complain later on no matter who wins.
