The ultimate commitment
The ultimate commitment

Nearly 300 people have died following the world’s biggest-ever single-day election, which took place last month in Indonesia—not through protests or civil unrest, but exhaustion.


272 people who were counting collapsed from fatigue-related illness in the 10 days following the country’s vote in April and an additional 1,878 took ill.


What made this the largest single-day election in human history is that 80% of the Indonesia's eligible citizens voted. This means 150 million people filled out five paper ballots each. So roughly 750 million ballots needed to be counted by hand.


They made the ultimate sacrifice just to count votes.

    It saddens me how much we take voting for granted here. Especially when I read how important it is to people in other countries.
