'Darth Vader' Prevented From Voting In Kyiv

A man dressed as Darth Vader, the masked villain from the "Star Wars" movie franchise, tried to vote at a polling station in Kyiv on October 26, but was prevented from doing so by election officials. Darth Vader impersonators have made a number of appearances in Ukraine in the past two years as part of publicity stunts by the Internet Party of Ukraine, which advocates technological improvements to eliminate bureaucracy.
