    The Independent Election Commission (IEC) said that 5,355 polling centres opened on Saturday, 542 less than had been planned. Of those, 153 polling centres closed for security reasons.

    As of midday, 2,627 centres had reported results, and 1.68 million voters had cast ballots, around 30 per cent of the roughly 5 million people the IEC predicted would turn out.

    Attacks have been spread across the country, but the death toll reportedly has been low; the Afghan Pajhwok News agency counted 15 dead and 40 wounded. The most deadly attack appeared to be an improvised explosive device or mine that killed nine civilians in Balkh province.

    Electoral fraud was also widespread, though official complaints that could lead to votes being invalidated likely will not be adjudicated by the Electoral Complaints Commission for weeks. There were reports of election officials stuffing ballots, and voters complained about being able to wash off supposedly indelible ink.

    Data is compiled from a number of sources, including the Pajhwok news agency, TOLO News, Radio Azadi and Alive in Afghanistan.
