Voters in Liberia are going to the polls Tuesday for the second time since the end of their 14-year civil war.
President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is facing a tough fight for a second term, just days after receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. The Liberian leader is running against more than a dozen opponents. Her stiffest competition comes from a ticket that includes Winston Tubman, who, like Mrs. Sirleaf, is a Harvard graduate. His running mate is former football star George Weah, who was a presidential candidate in 2005.
