MOSCOW, December 4 (Itar-Tass) —— The turnout makes 48% in the city of Baikonur (the Republic of Kazakhstan) three hours before the closure of polling stations, chairman of the local territorial election commission Mikhail Moskalev said during a video hook-up with the Central Election Commission on Sunday.
“Some 48% of voters voted three hours before the closure of the polling stations,” he said.
He noted that the voting is held on the electronic voting complexes, with which all seven polling stations are equipped.
“During the voting some equipment failed due a major inflow of people,” Moskalev said.
Meanwhile, he noted that the voting did not stop for a second, “each polling station has five booths for voting.”
Russian Ambassador to Kazakhstan Mikhail Bocharnikov noted that the voting in Kazakhstan is organized at 16 polling stations, including Astana, Almaty, regional centres and military units. “The number of voters is at the same level as at the previous elections to the State Duma in 2007,” the ambassador noted, adding that “the voting passes calmly and in the organized way.”
