    Many Haitians have no way to vote

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     JOHNNYCOLT says many Haitians are having trouble voting because their names are not on the voter rolls.
    - jsarverCNN, CNN iReport producer

    I have followed Gaston Elso through six polling stations on his journey to vote. His name appears on none of the lists that show who is eligible to vote: the voter rolls. Mr. Elso holds a voter registration card as well as a license from the CEP that allows him to drive, today, yet he is struggling to find a way to vote. According to Mr. Elso, this is a serious problem and we may expect tension and public displays of anger by late afternoon. I saw many Haitians coming in and out of the polling stations who were frustrated by the same experience that Mr. Elso is experiencing.
