CONAKRY, Guinea — Guineans cast their ballot Sunday in a vote that has been delayed multiple times following violent ethnic clashes that pitted the nation's two largest ethnic groups against each other.

The ethnic divide between supporters of rival candidates Cellou Dalein Diallo and Alpha Conde has overshadowed what was supposed to be a historic ballot for the African nation of 10 million, which has never had a change of power through an election considered free and fair.

Election observers said voting was calm and that they had recorded only minor problems, including insufficient ballots in some precincts, said National Independent Electoral Commission President Siaka Toumani Sangare.
