Volgograd Votes

MOSCOW (Reuters) -- Voters in the Volgograd region went to the polls Sunday to elect members to the local legislature amid power outages caused by heavy snowfall and a brief bomb scare, Itar-Tass reported.

Polls opened on time, although some voting took place by candlelight or flashlight in areas hit by power cuts, Itar-Tass said. Voting at one polling station was interrupted by an anonymous bomb threat, it said.
