Between home and voting station, how many checkpoints of these guys will Guinean citizens have to pass through? 

No doubt, the government spent its 4-day extension wisely by further perfecting its election fraud throughout the country.  If you recall, one of the concerns of the opposition is the government’s placement of voting stations a long distance away from voters’ homes in areas known to be opposition strongholds, some as far as 5-10 kilometers.  Prohibiting traffic from 8am – 6pm ensures that the placement of these stations will have the intended effect — disenfranchisement of Guinean voters.
