Abstract

The article is devoted to study of absenteeism in the context of the Soviet electoral system formation of 1920s. On basis of archival, printing and statistical data author analyzes manifestations and main causes of mass population absenteeism in the early 1920s. We consider the attitude of the Bolsheviks in relation to the absenteeism of population as an indicator of the crisis of relations. Additionally we identify ways of the official response to absenteeism from the cancellation of the elections and the democratization of the electoral system to the use of administrative resources.
