What elections will be in 2019 in Russia

If large-scale election campaigns take place this fall, what elections will be held in 2019 in Russia and who will the citizens choose? Next year, the procedure will be repeated in those regions whose heads left the post in June 2018.


Elections in the country

For the first time, elections in Russia were held back in the ninth century, in Veliky Novgorod. This system was also used in the Pskov principality, but from the 16th century until the beginning of the last century, elections were not held.

What elections will be in 2019 in Russia

Today, the election procedure is one of the most common forms of participation of the country's population in the socio-political life of Russia. By choosing and approving candidates for the position of the head of the governing body, citizens express their agreement with this or that program.

There are three types of this system:

  • Majority. The winner is the one for whom the greatest number of people are given;
  • Proportional. The distribution of parliamentary seats according to the votes received;
  • Hybrid Synthesis of the first two types of election procedure.

Important! Elections of the President of Russia are made by the majority system.

Suffrage arises when a person reaches 18 years of age. And the right to be elected is 24 years old. To run for office as head of state is 35 years old.

In which regions will the elections be held

In the post-Soviet period, elections at various levels were held in a chaotic manner - each region could arrange an election process on a day off. But in the early 2000s, changes were made that established a single voting day. So, the election of the head of state is always held in March, and in the State Duma - in the fall.

This fall, September 9, elections will be held with the following definition:

  • seven deputies will be elected to the State Duma;
  • deputies to legislative bodies in 17 subjects;
  • chapters of twenty-six regions (see table below).
