NEW YORK, September 19. /TASS/. The polling stations at the elections to the Russian State Duma of the 7th convocation closed on Sunday evening in the US cities of San Francisco, California, and Seattle, Washington, at 8pm local time (6am Moscow time). These are the westernmost polling stations at the Duma elections.
Maxim Goncharov, spokesman for the Russian Consulate General in San Francisco, told TASS that "voting was held in the routine mode" and no incidents were registered. He noted that nearly 460 Russian citizens voted at the polling station.
Mobile voting was organized for Russian citizens in Los Angeles and Sacramento in California, and in Denver in Colorado. Voter turnout there stood at around 340 people.
No incidents were registered during voting in Seattle. Deputy Consul General Halit Aysin said that 300 people voted at this polling station.
The elections in New York ended three hours ago. Deputy Consul General Andrey Pugayev said that "1,314 people came to vote," adding that the Consulate General is pleased with this result.
Voting in New York was held with increased security measures, due to the blast that rocked the city’s Chelsea neighborhood on Saturday.
