    Across Afghanistan, voters turned out in droves Saturday to cast ballots in a crucial presidential election.
    The Taliban threatened to target voters and polling places, but there were few instances of violence. Instead, those wanting to cast ballots joined long lines and expressed pride for security forces guarding the election and a willingness to stand up for their country.
    The vote will decide who will replace President Hamid Karzai, who is barred constitutionally from seeking a third term.
