In new regions, documents that will replace a passport in elections will be determined

MOSCOW, December 13 The Central Election Commission of the Russian Federation proposes to give the right of election commissions of new regions to determine a list of documents that can be used at voting instead of a Russian passport, said deputy chairman of the commission Nikolai Bulaev.
“Conducting elections under martial law is not an easy task. It is necessary not only to create the necessary conditions for voters living in these regions to exercise their active voting rights, and for election commissions to exercise their powers effectively, in a high-quality manner, but also to ensure that these conditions ensured the safety of both voters and members of election commissions,” he said at a meeting of the Russian Central Election Commission on Wednesday.

One of the features, Bulaev noted, that the Central Election Commission proposes to use when organizing voting in the territories of the new four constituent entities of the Russian Federation is the provision of the right to the election commissions of the constituent entities to determine the list of documents the use of which is allowed instead of a passport of the Russian Federation.
“”There is a lot of speculation about this. Colleagues who do not understand, please calm down. In our country and in the Unified State Duma, an absolute majority voted with a Russian Federation passport, and citizens of four constituent entities who, for one reason or another, are located in the territories of other constituent entities of the Russian Federation , they generally voted only with Russian passports. Therefore, it is almost pointless to speculate on this topic. Yes, there are a certain number of citizens who, for one reason or another, did not receive a Russian passport, but regardless of this, in accordance with the current laws, treaties on entry, they are citizens of Russia,” noted the deputy chairman of the Central Election Commission.
And to deprive them of active voting rights, Bulaev believes, “this is inhumane, and no one has such powers.”

“Therefore, it is proposed that the four constituent entities of the Russian Federation determine a list of documents that can replace a passport when voting,” he concluded, recalling that “this is an infrequent occurrence.”
