ISLAMABAD (AP) -- An explosion outside a political office in Karachi is among the attacks that have left a total of 24 people dead on this election day in Pakistan.
Despite the violence, Pakistanis have been streaming to the polls.
One man said instead of sitting at home and allowing the terrorism to continue, he wants to elect a government that can put an end to terrorism.
The election is seen by many as a key step toward solidifying civilian rule in Pakistan, which has seen three military coups. This is the country's first transition between one elected government fulfilling its term and another elected government.
