In Libya, voters will go to the polls Saturday to pick a 200-member General National Congress from 3,707 candidates. In the U.S., Libyan-Americans have been traveling to the Holiday Inn in Arlington since Tuesday to cast ballots at the only U.S. polling place established by a transitional Libyan government — a moment that many of them never dreamed they would witness in their lifetimes.
About 2,500 Libyan students and their families living in North America have become victims of the conflict raging in their homeland.
"We have been waiting for this moment for decades," said Ali Alghonas of Cincinnati, a manager at the polling station.
"I was on full scholarship. Now, I don't have anything," he said.
