    Early presidential elections kicked off in Kazakhstan on Sunday.

    Polling stations in most Kazakh regions opened at 7 am local time (4am in Moscow). In some other regions, voting will start an hour later as they are in a different time zone.

    People will be able to cast ballots until 8 pm (5 pm in Moscow). Election officials will then be given 12 hours to count the votes cast for each of the candidates. The new head of state should be registered within seven days from November 21-27.

    Six candidates are in the running, including incumbent President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev who represents the People’s Coalition.
