Afghan women wait outside a polling station to cast their ballots for the parliamentary elections in Mazar-e-Sharif, Balkh province, north of Kabul, Afghanistan, Saturday, Sept. 18, 2010. Afghans braved Taliban rockets and polling site bombings Saturday to vote for a new parliament in elections seen as a measure of the government's competence and commitment to democratic rule. It was the first nationwide balloting since a fraud-marred presidential election last year undermined international support for President Hamid Karzai.The ink on the woman's finger is from traditional henna.
