Movement for Defence of Voters' Rights Golos

golos@golosinfo.org

Association “Golos” is Russian non-profit organization, established in 2000 in order to protect the rights of Russian voters and to develop the civil society. In 2013, by decision of the Ministry of Justice, activities of the organization were suspended because of the refusal of its members to recognize their association as a “foreign agent”.

After the cessation of activities of the Association, its former experts and activists have created a new organization - Movement for Defence of Voters' Rights “Golos” to use their personal experience for monitoring of Russian elections. In recent years, the Movement “Golos” managed to take the major role in civil monitoring of the elections in Russia, and in cooperation with other voters’ associations to defend fair, free and transparent elections through education of voters, conduct of long-term and short-term observations, collection and publication of information about violations and discussions of current electoral issues.
