Iraqi security personnel Monday cast their votes across the country ahead of parliamentary elections April 30 amid tight security. The voting began after 7.00 a.m. local time when hundreds of soldiers and policemen lined up at polling centres across the Iraqi capital of Baghdad and in other cities to cast their ballots. Iraq's Independent High Electoral Commission decided that security forces vote two days ahead of the scheduled election date in order to be free to guard polling stations on election day.
