Young Liberians went straight from all-night Christmas celebrations to the polls Tuesday for a runoff election between a former international football star and the vice president to replace Africa's first female head of state.Nearly 2.2 million voters have the choice between 51-year-old former football star and senator George Weah and 73-year-old Joseph Boakai, who has been vice president for 12 years.The first-round Oct. 10 election brought high numbers of voters, and officials hoped Tuesday's vote would be no different.This is Liberia's first independently run election since the end of its back-to-back civil wars.
