Golos Analytical Report

Analytical report on administrative control over the procedure of collecting signatures of deputies and heads of municipal entities in support of candidates (“municipal filter”)


On “Single Voting Day” of 10 September 2017, elections of various levels will take place in Russia. The heads of the regions (governors) will be elected, as well as the deputies of regional legislative bodies and members of the State Duma in single-mandate constituencies.  On the occasion of these elections, EPDE publishes a series of “Golos” reports. Please see the first report of this series, dealing with the existing “municipal filter” practice which is accompanied by widespread “administrative pressure” on municipal deputies and the use of public resources, helping to ensure collection of signatures in favor of certain administrative candidates.
