The preliminary voting on May 26 is organized according to the first model in those localities where the population exceeds 10 thousand people. In the current campaign, seven municipalities fall under this criterion.
Also on this day, the candidates as part of the by-election to the State Assembly of the Republic will be determined. The choice will be made by Ufa residents and residents of Neftekamsk. A list of counting stations with addresses in Ufa and Neftekamsk can be found on the website of the regional branch of United Russia; for the rest of the municipalities, information is posted at the place of residence of voters.
Total, more than 14.5 thousand candidates will take part in the procedure of preliminary voting, among them more than 2000 youth representatives in Bashkortostan.
Despite the fact that the procedure is inner-party, all residents, and not just party members, can take part in the preliminary voting. The voting is rated and several candidates can be marked at once.
