Afghanistan: Thriving Democracy?

In the West we mean by democracy open and free elections to elect leaders. Is such a thing happening in Afghanistan? Poor general public is under the gun whether they go and vote or stay home. If they don't vote then they're a part of the Taliban and thus face guns from NATO or the US and if they vote then they may face Taliban guns for being allies with the enemy or infidels. In either way this election in Afghanistan at this time is a big farce.
