Make elections attractive again: Popular Russian Instagram influencer launches VOTING PAGEANT as country heads to polls (PHOTOS)

Blogger Alina Morozova came up with the election beauty pageant on Friday. Suggesting that the women of her region were “the most beautiful,” as well as “smart and cheerful,” she offered prizes for any female posters over 18 who helped show “how attractive an election in Krasnodar can be” by taking a snap of themselves at a polling station.

While the online contest sparked some interest on Instagram, turnout at polling stations in the region has been fairly high, with 43.2% of voters having cast their ballots by Saturday night. The figure is higher than the national equivalent, which stood at just over 31.5% before the last day of voting began.
