The author considers the peculiarities of students’ electoral behavior. Attitudes toward elections in general, and for the municipal elections that took place in the autumn of 2015 in the south-east of Moscow region are specifically analyzed. The results of the author’s social study on this issue are presented. The study concludes that passive young people not participating in the elections constitute a significant proportion of the respondents. The federal elections (President of the State Duma) arouse significantly greater interest than local or regional. The dependence of the students’ electoral behavior from the spheres of training is not identified. At the same time, there is a certain correlation between a student’s electoral activity and his involvement into social or volunteer work.

Key words

electoral behavior, models of electoral behavior, absenteeism, motivation, sociological research
