In the Imenlek boarding school for the elderly and disabled in Ufa, the election commission organized an on-site voting, since most of the wards cannot go to the polling station on their own.
By the time the exit election commission arrived, those who could reach the assembly hall had already lined up. And those who were physically unable to vote made a political decision without leaving their room.
Voters of Bashkiria elect deputies to the State Duma and the city council of the city of Ufa. 3.4 thousand polling stations have been opened in the republic.
In 2021, elections to the State Duma are held for the first time in a new, three-day format. September 19 is the main voting day, and September 17 and 18 are optional.
Simultaneously with the elections to the State Duma on a single voting day, direct elections are held for the heads of nine Russian constituent entities (in three more regions, deputies of legislative assemblies will elect the highest administrative persons) and 39 regional parliaments.
