Russia's eighth presidential election begins Friday and will continue until Sunday.

Russia has set up more than 90,000 polling stations operating from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. local time between March 15 and 17. 

Four candidates have registered for the election, namely incumbent Russian President Vladimir Putin, leader of the Liberal Democratic Party Leonid Slutsky, Vladislav Davankov from Russia's New People Party, and Nikolai Kharitonov, the Russian Communist Party's candidate. 

According to the rules, a candidate who secures more than half of the votes will be elected president. If no candidate achieves a majority and there are more than two candidates, a second round of voting will be held between the two candidates with the most votes, and the winner of this round will be elected. 

The counting of votes will begin once the election concludes and will continue until the results are finalized. The final results will be confirmed no later than March 28 by Russia's Central Election Commission and will be announced within three days of confirmation.
