Abstract


The article addresses the issue of absence of voters – electoral absenteeism basing on the materials of the 2000–2012 Presidential campaign. Having analyzed sociological studies the authors conclude that the main types of absentees in the presidential elections in Russia are passive citizens, apolitical and alienated from politics. The authors forecast the level of absenteeism in the 2018 presidential election to be not higher than 40 %in case there will not be any social cataclysms. Some ways to solve the problem of non-participation in the elections are proposed. Among them: enhancing the level of political culture of citizens since school age, and the introducing an electronic voting for young people.

Key words


absenteeism, electoral absenteeism, turnout, the Russian presidential election campaign, electoral process, electoral behavior
