The head of the Central election Commission Ella Pamfilova said that the Central election Commission creates a single register of voters on the basis of the action for double counting of voters conducted before the presidential election in March 2018.

«About «dead souls» — it was not just a one-time action to clean the lists. It is the eve of the great work system, which we are now, to create a single register of voters as it should be considering all factors. I think we will finish the job to get,» — said Pamfilova during the round table «Topical issues of improvement and development of electoral legislation».

CEC jointly with the foreign Ministry to the presidential elections in March 2018 has been double counting of citizens: this is the first year of the MFA sent to the CEC the lists of voters permanently residing in a foreign country and are on consular register. This information was transferred to the regions to exclude them from the voter lists at the place of registration.

The Chairman of the CEC of Russia Ella Pamfilova before the election of the head of state reported that about 1.5 million «doubles» and «dead souls» purged from the voter lists for the elections of the President of Russia.
