Electoral rights of Biysk citizens are under particular scrutiny

During the working visit to Biysk city, Head of the Office of the Commissioner for Human Rights in the Altai Territory Natalia Zuykova acquainted herself with the procedure for the provision of social services at the Comprehensive Center for Social Services of the city and in the Biysk boarding house for the elderly and disabled.

The comprehensive center renders various kinds of social services, from personal to legal ones, to 14,000 citizens annually. To date, the institution is of particular interest to human rights defenders, since on a single voting day, on September 10, a polling station will be deployed there.

Ensuring the electoral rights of certain categories of citizens is being monitored by the Commissioner. This electoral district is «special», there are a remand centre No. 2, a tuberculosis hospital and the Center for social adaptation of homeless persons.

«We have about two thousand voters, and most of them are socially unprotected citizens, but the turnout is high, and to those who can not reach the polling station, we come on request with a portable ballot box," said Center’s director Lyudmila Chernova.

228 people live in the Biysk boarding house for the elderly and disabled. Conditions of accommodation in the dispensary comply with the established standards. On a single day of voting, those living in a boarding house will vote at the polling station, which is located near the institution, and those with mobility difficulties will vote on the spot with the usage of mobile ballot boxes.

The Commissioner continues to monitor the implementation of electoral rights of various categories of citizens.
