Record turnout and the percentage of voters who voted for United Russia in the past elections to the State Duma in Vladimir region were observed at polling station #931, located at a secondary school in the village of Chaadaevo in Muromsky district. Here 85% of voters came to the polling station (while the voter turnout in the district was 51%), 74% voted for the United Russia party and 9.86% voted for the CPRF. At a neighboring polling station in the same village 28.1% of voters cast their votes for the CPRF and 44.8% for Edinaya Rossiya (United Russia).
Polling station #931 also set new electoral records. It is the only PEC in the region that had 248 participants who voted early; moreover, 857 ballots out of 1,165 were cast outside the voting premises. In total at this polling station more than 10% of all who came to vote in the Murom region, which is divided into 33 PECs.
As ProVladimir was told by the regional election commission, the anomalies at the rural polling station in the Murom district can be explained by the fact that military personnel voted there. Their place of deployment does not have a voting room and transportation to the area is difficult. The decision to assign military personnel to the polling station in Chaadaevo was taken by the regional election commission on September 10, a week before the elections.
Muromsky district is leading in the Vladimir oblast both in terms of turnout, the number of those who voted outside of PECs (18% as of September 18), and the final result for the ruling party – 49.65% against an average of 37.64% for the region.
According to preliminary results, in Vladimir oblast, United Russia garnered 37.64% of the vote, while the CPRF took second place with 25.95%. In the single-mandate districts the United Russia won by a wide margin over its opponents.
