Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Make elections attractive again: Instagram blogger launches VOTING PAGEANT as Russia heads to polls (PHOTOS)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

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 pic of themselves at a polling station.

Morozova, who boasts some 537,000 followers on her Instagram blog, limited the contest to Krasnodar Region, adding a hashtag with the regional numeric code.

“No election campaigning allowed,” she warned, asking participants to only show off themselves, and not their chosen candidates.

“Let’s show Russian men that they are lucky to be surrounded by such beauty,” the blogger wrote in her post, which has attracted over 4,500 likes.

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