Russia's Doing Something A Little Different To Get Voters To The Polls
The New York Times compared the atmosphere at polling places to a carnival.
It's Election Day in Russia, and President Vladimir Putin is almost guaranteed another six years in office.
The Kremlin did something a little different to get people to the polls. Voters at polling stations were greeted by music, dancing, food and colorful "selfie zones." The New York Times compared polling locations to a carnival.
Putin has been in power in some form since he was first elected president in 2000. If he's re-elected, he'll be in office until at least 2024.
While he did have some competition for the position, his main opponent, Alexei Navalny, was barred from campaigning due to a prior fraud conviction.
