MOSCOW, June 7 (Itar-Tass) —— Elections of mayors due on June 10 and June 17 in the cities of Krasnoyarsk and Omsk, respectively, will be a kind of final rehearsal of direct gubernatorial elections in Russia, deputy chairman of the Russian Central Election Commission Leonid Ivlev told reports on Thursday, after visits to these cities.

According to Ivlev, the situation in these cities is “stable, there are no force-majeure circumstances there.” “Maybe, there is more drive in Krasnoyarsk,” he said.

Both cities have about one million eligible voters each. All polling stations are equipped with web cameras and transparent ballot boxes. In Krasnoyarsk, polling stations are equipped with electronic ballot boxes as well.

The Central Elections Commission does not plan to establish special control over these elections, Ivlev said and added that anyone may watch the voting on the commission’s website. In his words, no registration will be needed for that.
