Vote starts on US East Coast and Canada

23 noiembrie 2009

Information in English

Voting in the polling stations opened for Romanians living in Canada and the US East Coast began on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. Romanian time, whereas three stations in the Far East closed. Voting in the presidential elections and the referendum kicked off at 2:00 p.m. in 17 sections organized for the Romanian diaspora, including Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, Washington, New York, Atlanta, Boston and Detroit.

Meanwhile, the polling stations in Tokyo, Seoul and Pyongyang closed. Also at 2:00, voting began in Colombia, at the station opened in Bogota, and in Peru, at the Lima voting center. The last to exit the voting booths will be the Romanians living on the US West Coast, who will vote in the stations organized in Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco, Sacramento, Las Vegas, Orange County and Portland, where the process begins at 5:00 p.m. (Romanian time).

Given the time zone differences, elections organized round the globe cover a total of 35 hours, but just like in Romania, the vote takes place in the interval 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. local time. The Romanian Foreign Ministry (MAE) that is responsible for voting abroad, organized 294 polling sections and dispatched 600,000 ballot papers to the polling stations there for the presidential election and 600,000 papers for each of the two questions of the national referendum, a total of 1,800,000 ballot papers for the presidential elections and the referendum.
