In relation to the published information in the media about the attempts of ballot stuffing at some polling stations Chairperson of the CEC of Russia Ella Pamfilova appealed to all the chairpersons and members of precinct and territorial election commissions of the Khabarovsk Krai and Vladimir region:
"I urge you to prevent even the slightest infringement of the electoral legislation! Do not succumb to any pressure from unscrupulous participants in the electoral process, no matter from which side it is exercised! If pressure is exercised to produce illegal actions, immediately call the hotline of the CEC of Russia by phone number: +7 (495) 606-98-88 and report such facts. I'm sure anyone who tries to force members of election commissions to act illegally will face the most negative consequences!" said Ella Pamfilova.
For reference: on 23 September 2018 re-election is held in the elections of the highest officials in the Khabarovsk Krai and Vladimir oblast.
