Residents of the Crimea receive blank invitations for the referendum

More

The invitations specify absolutely no data at all.

The residents of the Crimea started to receive blank invitations for the referendum, reported the Internet-edition of ‘Island’ on March 13. It is reported that invitations are not filled in with the names of the voter or polling stations nor are territorial district numbers specified. Strangely those invited to vote are not even provided with the address of the polling station where they are to vote on the referendum. The precinct election commission contact details are also not specified.

As reported earlier, the referendum in the Crimea will be held on 16th of March. The self-proclaimed Crimean authorities are confident that residents of the peninsula will vote for accession to the Russian Federation.

Earlier, The Central Election Commission of Ukraine closed access to the state voter registry for Crimea.
