Haiti Elections - Some Haitian voters expect to get paid for their vote

Question: How many voters in Haiti actually go out to vote because it is their civic duty? --- The other day I was having a discussion with a few family and friends of mine in Hinche Haiti trying to explain to them that it is their civic duty to go out to vote... Ahhh... Pawol diaspora pitit... They don't get it... LOL... They expect something for voting and they are not talking about promises...

That leads me to raise the question: Does the majority of voters in Haiti go out to vote because it is their civic duty?

I remember when I was a child, there was an election for a depute in Haiti in my neighborhood. He brought truck loads of people from the countryside the night before, had a big party, lots of food, lots of KLEREN, and, on election day a bunch of drunks went out to vote and... Of course... He won... LOL...

I am not so sure if Haitians will vote for you these days solely because you give them food, KLEREN, or even a free t-shirt but I have a feeling that they want to charge for their vote...

Am I RIGHT or WRONG for thinking that? Have you spoken to any Haitian voter lately? What is your impression?

What do you think about this?
