Golos - open source data
Golos had to cancel its membership of the European Platform for Democratic Elections (EPDE) due to EPDE being listed as an "undesirable foreign organization" in Russia in March 2018. Due to this we exclusively evaluate open source information regarding election observation in Russia.
Primary Thematic Area:
Candidate and party registration
Subtopic of primary thematic area:
Support signatures
The voter should be provided with various options for the form to express support for candidates and party lists, for example: traditional - providing a signature to the candidate collector; proactive - when voters put their signatures in election commissions; electronic - using the website of the State Services and the websites of election commissions by filling out the appropriate electronic form; bank - transfer of a certain small amount of money through the banking system to a special account and even, under certain conditions, oral. The number of signatures collected in various ways and verified should be published and upon reaching the required number, the candidate should be automatically registered. The posting of the electoral deposit can also be seen as confirmation of the seriousness of the candidate's intentions.
