ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – With e-voting open for the Kurdistan diaspora on September 23, the first vote in the historic referendum has been cast in China, Karwan Jalal, general manager of data at the electoral commission told Rudaw.

Hemin Hawrami, senior assistant to President Masoud Barzani confirmed that the first vote has been cast.


Online voting for the diaspora is open from September 23 through September 25. Voters can also still register during that time after the registration period was extended and the commission dropped the ration card as a required piece of identification. 

In the Kurdistan Region and Kurdistani areas, voters will go to the polls on September 25.

"High Noon" in Kurdistan. For their election campaign, other nations in the past have used the poster of Gary Cooper with a ballot in his hands instead of a gun in the 1952 Black and White Western movie directed by Fred Zinnemann. Cooper as retiring marshal "Will Kane" goes all by himself against the Miller's 4 member gang, against the advice of townspeople (full of fear and hostility) to avoid the confrontation entirely. Kurds, like Will Kane, live in Today's world in the global Hadleyville in which Marshal Kane went against the gang of Four and Will Kane's Will at the end was stronger than the global opposition and the gang of Four.
