Observers report election violations in Krasnodar Territory

Mass transportation of voters to polling stations and violations in filling out documents were registered at polling stations in Kuban, observers reported.

The “Caucasian Knot” has reported that Kuban is in the top five regions with the largest number of complaints about violations, notes David Kankiya, an activist of the “Golos”* (Vote) movement.

Today, Alexander Korovainy, a member of the Yeisk District Council, has reported election violations in the Krasnodar Territory. In the town of Primorsko-Akhtarsk, a member of the election commission tried to give ballots to voters who produced only photocopies of passports. “Furthermore, the same precinct election commission has got a register of persons voting at home only in electronic form, and members of the election commission with an advisory vote are not allowed to look through it,” Alexander Korovainy reported.

The mass transportation of voters to a polling station has been registered as another violation. “Voters are being transported to the polling station in the village of Chelbasskaya,” reads the report about the violation.

“At the polling station in Kuschevka, documents are being filled out in a separate room. Observers are not allowed there <…>. Voters are being transported to the polling station No. 1711 in Kanevskaya,” the Telegram channel reported.

* The organization is included by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) of Russia in the register of NCOs performing the functions of a foreign agent.
