Northern nomads cast their votes

Early voting in the presidential election is underway in Russia. Among the first to cast their votes were nomadic deer herders living in the extreme north.

Off-road vehicles and helicopters carrying members of the Russiain Election Commission brought ballot boxes to the hard-to-reach areas of the vast tundra.

The rest of the country has its chance to vote on March 2.
