In this Oct. 9, 2012 photo, an electoral roll and two candidatesí resumes are taped to a barber shopís store window, in Old Havana, Cuba. Elections in Cuba lack the hoopla they have in other countries, but authorities here say they give people a voice in government and answer charges that the communist-run country is undemocratic. Critics call the votes, including one scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 21, 2012, a sham since voters canít throw out the Communist Party or the Castros. (AP Photo/Franklin Reyes)
