The main thing – do not make the wrong figures
During the meeting with journalists, activists told about the most frequent shortcomings arising during the collection of signatures.
“The signatures are going strictly with a passport, as volunteers must confirm the accuracy of the number of the identity document, as well as to fulfill the requirement of law that the signatures can be put only to local residents,” – said in the headquarters.
Signatures in support of Putin gather volunteers. A significant number of them – the activists of the movement “Victory Volunteers”, which are located in shopping malls and other public spaces. Also the signatures are collected in public reception of “United Russia”. According to activists, the decision was made during the collection of signatures do not walk on the apartments, not to invade the personal space of Russians.
“Citizens usually see the paragraphs of the petition and are interested in what’s going on. Volunteers tell them about the necessary requirements of what to put the signature in support of a candidate is possible only with a passport. After that, citizens who do not have the document proving the identity, go home, to return with your passport and sign it”, – told TASS one of the activists of the headquarters. According to him, often citizens are not just volunteers, to sign it, but start to talk about their reasons why they decided to support Putin.
However, even the attention of the volunteers to this procedure will not protect him from possible defects. One of the most common mistakes is entering the wrong passport number in the signature sheets.
“Sometimes instead of four digits in the series and six digits numbers in the signature sheets of the passport is marked with nine and sometimes eleven digits”, – told in the headquarters. These signatures are not tested.
Head of legal service of staff Sergei Kabyshev told about another common mistake – the so-called non-stipulated corrections. According to him, the so-called corrections in subscription lists, which were not duly authenticated by the signature collectors.
Kabyshev stressed that, because the signature sheets contain some personal information, then stored these leaves will be carefully. The leaves, which were not selected in the CEC, are likely to be destroyed. The press-Secretary of the headquarters Andrey Kondrashov said that the people signing will not be forgotten, they will go to work, and on their basis the basis of Putin.
