TBILISI, October 27 (Itar-Tass) - Voting in the presidential election began in Georgia at 08:00 hours Sunday /04:00 hours GMT/. It will continue through to 20:00 hours local time.
A total of 3,689 polling stations have been set up. According to the information provided by the Central Election Commission, the country has about 3.54 million registered voters.
An hour after the start of the voting procedures, a very high activity of voters could be seen in the capital Tbilisi. By tradition, senior citizens were the first ones to turn out at the polling stations.
Small queues formed at some stations, since all the voters are expected to pass the marking procedure before they cast their ballots.
Anyone coming to a polling station should first present an ID or an international passport confirming Georgian citizenship. After that, a member of the electoral commission checks out the presence of marking on the voter’s figure with the aid of specialized equipment.
Representatives of the Central Election Commission say the marker liquid, which is put over the figure, is wholly healthy, has the endorsement of the World Health Organization, is utilized all across the world, and does not contravene the dogmas of any religion.
