OTTAWA, December 2 (Itar-Tass) — Russians, who are staying in Canada, will be able to cast ballots at four polling stations on the day of the elections to the Duma. They will be opened in Ottawa, Toronto, Monteal and Vancouver, Andrei Varlamov, head of the consular department of the Russian embassy in Canada, told Itar-Tass.

“During preparations for the voting a special note was forwarded to the Canadian Foreign Ministry, and the Canadian officials gave their consent to the organisation of voting on the territory of diplomatic missions,” he said. According to his information, premises for the voting are ready. Russian nationals will be able to exercise their constitutional right after the presentation of the Russian internal passport or the passport for foreign travel.

The voting will begin at 08.00, local time (the difference with Moscow time is nine hours) and will end at 20.00. When the polling station is closed in Vancouver, on the Pasific coast, it will be 08.00 of December 5, in Moscow. After the end of vote counting, the ballot papers will be sent to the Russian Foreign Ministry.
