More than one thousand pollers (1048) in Bashkortostan have already used their right in the course of the pre-term voting, the Central Election Committee RB reports. The highest number of voters is registered in the town of Beloretsk and in Yanaulsky region B.

The pre-term voting within the frames of the actual election campaign began on September 18 in Bashkortostan. Those voters, who for some reasons, fail to visit elections stations on October 4, voted in the territorial elections commissions first, and now (since September 30 till October 3 inclusive) they may vote in the district election commissions.

The elections in Bashkortostan will be held earlier than in other Russian regions due to celebration of the Republic Day on October 11. On October 4 86 election campaigns on election of deputies to the representative local self-government bodies will be held and at that 143 deputy mandates will be replaced. In total complexity the elections will be held in 31 municipal districts and the lists of voters include more than 120 thousand people. 180 election stations are opened for holding the voting.
