Cuba plans to use carrier pigeons in Sunday's elections

El Túnel

Municipal elections are set for Sunday. Electoral officials plan to use more than 500 carrier pigeons to relay results from mountainous areas where there are no phones.
The Miami Herald reports:
More than 8.4 million Cubans aged 16 or older will be able to vote in 29,856 polling places for more than 15,000 candidates for seats on the island's 169 municipal councils.
