Debate in the "Daily" magazine: Should there be an active registration for elections?

We are publishing Antoaneta's opinion, reflected in the discussion of the internet magazine "Daily", on the following topic: "Should there be an active registration for elections?"


You may review the entire article (in Bulgarian) on the "Daily's" webpage here.

 

The phantoms in the electoral lists are increasing the risk of election manipulations.

Such efforts should be made, because the accuracy of the election lists is of fundamental relevance for the integrity of the entire election process. In Bulgaria the problem remains unsolved but the participants of the political life have expressed concerns about the disproportions between national census data and the number of people, registered in the electoral lists. Nearly one million “dead souls” are currently present in those lists, thus increasing the risk of manipulation of the election results and bribing district electoral commissions that could use the votes of people, who have not exercised their right to vote.

 

Furthermore there are many people who are attending in the lists because they have permanent address in Bulgaria, but their current address is elsewhere abroad. They vote in diplomatic missions and polling stations organized abroad.
