The First Indochina War ended with a peace treaty that called for peaceful elections and a unified nation. The socialist north quickly began taking measures to make certain they won the election. The capitalist south did the same in their regions. The socialist won 99% of the vote in the north. The capitalist won 98% of the vote in the south. It was a proud day for democracy in action. Unless of course you suspected vote tampering. Saigon’s 133% turnout for the south was a clue there might have been.
