The head of the CEC of Russia Ella Pamfilova was called at home and early voting, which in some cases have become a field for the application of the administrative resource and provide an abnormally high percentage of voters, «the main headache» of the CEC.

«Early voting and voting at home account for a major headache. Thank God the presidential election of parole will not, but voting at home is one of the most intense areas of our attention,» — said Pamfilova at the round table of the CEC according to the results of the single voting day.

She was encouraged to think about how best to control the situation with home-based voting, in order, on the one hand, to ensure the rights of voters, with another — not to allow the use of these people for wrong purposes.

According to her, during recent elections in some regions was marked by a very high percentage of those votes — 17% and above; there were situations when voting at home the number of voters exceeded the voting on the site.

It happens that such abnormally high results demonstrated by early voting, although these figures decreased. In the elections of 2017 in the average early voting 3.5%, said Pamfilova, but apart is Barnaul, where the rate was 5.4%.

In CEC, this situation is considered unhealthy, there is reason to believe that it was applied an administrative resource. «And it turned out that we are absolutely powerless, in addition to to shake the air. Went our colleague checked out, but so much sophisticated technology began to apply — the administrative resource,» — said Pamfilova.

The Federal elections early voting for all voters is not used in principle; traditionally it is organized only in some regions for voters in remote areas are at sea on vessels which on the day of voting will not be able to arrive at the polling station.

Pamfilova noted that, thanks to this year’s amendments, the application of the Institute of early voting in General is minimized. It was no longer applied in the elections at the regional level, but in the municipal elections of its abolition, according to the decision of the constitutional court, is almost impossible; you need to offer some kind of alternative, stressed the head of the CEC.
