The polling for over 15 thousand candidates for some 7.8 thousand seats in the self-governing bodies of soums (administrative units within provinces) and city districts ended at 22.00. Chairman of the General Election Committee Ch.Sodnomtseren said the voter turnouts were insufficient at almost half of all polling stations.

In Ulaanbaatar, the lowest participation was observed in Chingeltei and Songinokhairkhan districts. To be specific, only 4-5 out of Chingeltei's 19 khoroos (smallest electoral administrative unit) saw satisfactory attendance.

Total of 860 thousand voters were registered in capital city, of which 413 thousand 212 voters or 48 percent of them have voted. 

The voter turnout data are being collected at the moment. The additional polling will be held on October 23 among 79 khoroo. 

The General Election Committee will hold a press briefing today (October 20).
