In Russia, nomads get to vote early in presidential election

Early voting for Presidential election is ongoing in some remote Russian areas, where local election commissions bring ballot boxes by helicopter and snowmobile. In the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District, thousands of Nenets nomads are currently voting. Early vote will end in that region on Saturday. On the 18th March, Russians will vote to choose their President for a new six years term.
