Primary Thematic Area:
Voter registration
Subtopic of primary thematic area:
Centralized voter register
In the conditions of increased mobility of citizens, it is necessary to abolish the "serfdom" of voters - voting only at the place of registration. The voter must, on his own initiative, determine the place for the exercise of active suffrage, depending on the place of his actual residence at the moment. The desire of the voter to influence the composition of the authorities in the place where he works and pays taxes is more important than his formal registration at his former place of residence
