Thus, the voting in the second round of Ukraine’s presidential elections has officially ended, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"Out of 23,893 people registered at the polling station in San Francisco, 582 people came to vote on Sunday," Mykyta Safronenko, a member of the precinct election commission, said in a commentary to Ukrinform.
According to him, the voter turnout in San Francisco was 2.43%.
As Ukrinform correspondent learnt from chairman of the precinct election commission in Washington D.C. Valeriy Yehorov, 464 Ukrainians out of 7,299 registered voted on Sunday, the turnout at the polling station was 6.3%.
In New York, 11,993 Ukrainian citizens were registered for voting in the second round. According to chairwoman of the precinct election commission Iryna Mazur, 1,353 people exercised their right to vote at this polling station. The turnout, respectively, was 11.3%.
1,126 Ukrainian out of about 5,900 registered came to the polling station in Chicago, which covers nine US states. Here, the voter turnout in the second round of Ukraine’s presidential elections was the highest in the United States - 19%.
As reported, all four voting stations in the United States are located in the premises of the embassy and consular departments of Ukraine and cover all 50 U.S. states and District Columbia.
The low turnout in the United States is explained, in particular, by the great distances that Ukrainian voters from different states have to travel in order to exercise their voting rights.
