Electoral system

Under current election laws, the State Duma is elected on a single day for a term of five years, with parallel voting. Half of the seats (225) are elected by party-list proportional representation with a 5% electoral threshold, with the other half elected in 225 single-member constituencies by first-past-the-post voting.[1]

Participating parties

Parties represented in the State Duma, parties that received more than 3% of the vote in the previous elections or are represented at least in one of the regional parliaments are automatically allowed to contest the elections. Other parties need to collect signatures to participate in the elections. The official list of parties entitled to participate in the elections without collection of signatures will be announced before the election.[2]
