  • Gubernatorial elections in Vologda region are scheduled for September 14

  • The decision about the date of the election was unanimously approved by the deputies of the Oblast Legislative Assembly at the special session.

    In accordance with the current legislation, the deputies are to make a decision not earlier than 100 days before and 90 days till the Election Day. According to the Statute of the Vologda region, the gubernatorial elections are set by the Oblast Legislative Assembly on the next single voting day. This year it is scheduled for September 14.

    “It will certainly be a special day for local residents because the last direct election of the Vologda Oblast Governor was held 11 years ago. It will depend on the choice of local citizens how the social sphere and economy will develop, what will be done to improve the living standards in the region. That’s why I hope that all inhabitants of the Vologda region who have the right to vote will surely take part in the single voting day in September”, underlined Georgy Shevtsov, chairman of the Oblast Legislative Assembly.

    It is worth reminding that the direct gubernatorial elections were abolished in June 2005 and were introduced again in 2012.
