VLADIVOSTOK, March 4 (Itar-Tass) —— The turnout reached 26.96% of voters in the Chukotka Autonomous Area for two hours of voting at Russian presidential elections on Sunday, a source in the local election committee in Anadyr told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
Some 57 polling stations are opened in Chukotka, deputy chairperson of the election committee of the Chukotka Autonomous Area Alexandra Agapova said. The turnout reached one of the highest levels in Russia at all previous elections in the country. The turnout has made 79.41% at the elections to the State Duma on December 4, 2011.
Some 7.22% of voters participated in the voting in Kolyma for two hours. The highest turnout is reported so far in the northern Evenkia district, where 30% of eligible voters already participated in the elections, secretary of the elections committee in the Magadan Region Larisa Batsayeva said.
The turnout is higher than at the presidential elections in 2008. Then less than six percent of voters, who were registered in the Magadan Region, voted at 10:00 local time in Kolyma.
Over 23,400 voters participated in the voting in Kamchatka for the first two hours. This is 9.59% of eligible voters, deputy chairman of the Kamchatka territorial election committee Anatoly Gafiatulin told Itar-Tass. He noted that the residents on the peninsula show a higher turnout than that at the presidential elections in 2008, when the turnout reached 8.46% for the same period of time.
