The Vladivostok city municipal electoral Commission (VGMC) appealed to the Ministry of internal Affairs of Russia “with the presentation on inspection and suppression of violations of the law” on several complaints related to the incident during early voting August 30 in territorial election commissions of Leninski district. On the city website Vl.ru posted the video, which is recorded as a voter, Nadezhda Naumova perturbed by the fact that you have to stand in long queues, claims that the vote she promised 500 rubles., and arranges a fight with the police. “According to Nadezhda Naumova, 500 rubles offered just for the fact that they put on the ballot, his signature, but without tick”, — stated in the message. “If the vote buying is confirmed, those responsible must be held accountable”, — said “Kommersant” the Chairman of VGMIK Nikolay Kichatov.
It is not yet determined who was offered the money to the voter Naumova. In local forums and in social networks allegations of buying of votes are presented to the candidates from the “United Russia” and the Communist party. There are also queues from socially disadvantaged citizens at polling early voting. “Most, 20 people. In this regard, in the hallway Tick — the stench is such that even the saints fans. Smelled stale and even fresh vodka. Elections — they are always a treat, but since returned to these players early voting, the party can stretch for several days”, — wrote on his page on Facebook former Vice-Governor of Primorsky Krai on issues of domestic policy Alexander Shemelev.

From August 30 to September 5, early voting is held in the premises of territorial election commissions, from 6 to 9 September in the premises of precinct election commissions.
“Early voting can determine the outcome of the election, given that turnout on 10 September is expected to be low. Therefore, we will require that the results of early voting were voiced separately. We believe that early voting is largely controlled at the expense of busing of voters and buying their votes”, — said “Kommersant” member of VGIK, second Secretary of the regional Committee of the Communist party Pavel Ashihmin. In his opinion, the peak of the violations have the period of early voting in the district election commissions.
