An Afghan woman puts her finger into an ink bottle to mark herself as a voter who attended an election at a polling station in Mazar-i-Sharif, capital of Balkh province, Afghanistan in April 2014. Afghans flocked to polling stations nationwide on Saturday, defying a threat of violence by the Taliban to cast ballots in what promises to be the nation's first democratic transfer of power. The turnout was so high that some polling centers ran out of ballots. (AP Photo/Mustafa Najafizada)
