The voting was held from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. local time, as it was done in Russia.
Four polling stations operated in the United States on the election day, including in the embassy in Washington and Consulates General in New York, Houston and Seattle, as well as two stations outside the main polling stations — in Brooklyn and in Portland.
