A total of 657940 people voted in the region, or 64.10% of all voters. As regards the elections of 2012, the turnout practically did not change: in percentage terms, it slightly increased (+ 0.62%), and in absolute terms - just slightly decreased (-13032 people, or -1.94%). At the same time, the number of voters in the region declined: over 6 years, they decreased by 30,501 people. (2.88%). The resulting turnout was a record for the last presidential campaigns in the Yaroslavl region: in 2004, the turnout was 58.79%, in 2008 - 59.63% and in 2012 - 63.48%.
Despite the obvious tendency to increase turnout at the presidential elections, the experts who participated in our election special project “Election of the President of Russia 2018. Voting on March 18” were careful in their forecasts and could not predict the activity of voters in the region. Recall that in February and March we interviewed three experts in each of the 50 regions with the largest number of voters and, based on their forecasts, derived a consensus forecast for turnout in a particular region.In both “waves” of the survey, the consensus forecast for the Yaroslavl Region was 61%, i.e. slightly lower than the last result, but in fact the turnout slightly increased.
The results of voting for presidential candidates in the Yaroslavl region are as follows: Vladimir Putin - 71.84%, Pavel Grudinin - 12.96%, Vladimir Zhirinovsky - 7.54%, Ksenia Sobchak - 2.37%, Grigory Yavlinsky - 1.78 %, Boris Titov - 1.02%, Sergey Baburin - 0.81%, Maxim Suraikin - 0.67%. It is noteworthy that the candidates in the second half of the list showed results higher than in many other regions; Grigory Yavlinsky and Boris Titov were able to overcome the 1% barrier in addition to Ksenia Sobchak.
Vladimir Putin was able to slightly increase his 2004 result and set a new record in the percentage of votes for the "Kremlin candidate." In 2004 and 2012, he scored 70.81% and 54.53% of the votes, respectively, Dmitry Medvedev in 2008 had 63.58%. Candidates from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation and the Liberal Democratic Party observed a loss of votes compared to 2012, but not as strong as in other regions of the federation: Vladimir Zhirinovsky lost just a few tenths of a percent (he then had 7.72%), and Pavel Grudinin scored only 7% less than last time was Gennady Zyuganov (19.89%).
Summing up the campaign, the chairman of the Yaroslavl Oblast Election Commission, Oleg Zakharov, said: “The turnout in Yaroslavl and municipal districts is equally high. In our opinion, an equal indicator speaks about voter interest in elections. <...> With the turnout shown, we can talk about our unity society. In our opinion, the elections went well, without serious violations and failures. "
According to the local press, there was no overlap in these elections. Thus, at a number of polling stations in Yaroslavl and Rostov, it was not possible to include the ballot processing facilities (KOIBs), due to which the voters had to drop the ballots for some time in ordinary ballot boxes. KOIBs were repaired on election day, and after it was completed, ballots from stationary ballot boxes were passed through KOIBs. Opposition representatives appealed to the regional election campaign, demanding a manual count of the ballots in these polling stations, but they were refused. The rest, as the media and observers say, the elections were held without incident.
The results of the elections are estimated by the journalist, media manager Vyacheslav Markov: “The elections were held according to the plan. But, if you remember, Dovlatov has an expression that peopleThose sitting in the theater and watching what is happening on the stage can, if they wish, take a closer look and see behind the curtain a regular wall and simple hard workers. It seems to me that the screen was made possible thanks to the media and supporters. Many technologies have been used to increase turnout. "
Andrei Stanovoy, Director General of the Center for Political Counseling, considers the campaign held in the region to be transparent: “The objectives of legitimacy and transparency in the region have been fully met in our region. The United Russia party in our region did not refuse to debate. And openness and democracy were completely transparent All parties had open access to the media, trustworthy persons of all candidates had access to campaigning institutions. ... Electoral geography indirectly confirms that we all had transparent and transparent. <...> If we talk about turnout, it is difficult to say that the election organizers set such a task. The main task is to give people the opportunity to vote. I am happy for my fellow countrymen that we have a good turnout in the region. I was pleasantly surprised that cities showed a particularly high turnout. <...> The delta of votes in cities is still different.Therefore, it turns out that the very willingness of the residents to come was equally spread over the region. That is, the mobilization task of explaining to people their ability to come to vote was carried out qualitatively. "
Well, something like this.
