Remote Voting Begins




MOSCOW -- Sailors at sea, reindeer breeders in remote villages, and workers at polar stations began voting Wednesday in the presidential election.


Some 250,000 people out of 108 million registered voters can cast their ballots ahead of the March 26 election.


Members of territorial election commissions in the Far East Amur region traveled in cross-country vehicles to bring ballots to gold miners, geologists and weather forecasters stationed in remote villages.
