"The holders of all the three passports - a Russian, a Ukrainian and the Soviet one, if anyone has preserved it, will be eligible to vote. Registration in Crimea will be the main criteria,” Malyshev said.
He added that people who would not find themselves in the list of voters would have to write an application if they wanted to use their right to vote.
“No one will have to go to court,” the election committee head said.
Malyshev explained that the Federal Migration Service had submitted a list of 2,500 eligible voters who had officially applied for giving up the Russian citizenship.
"The district committees will check the lists and exclude the aforesaid people from voter lists,” Malyshev stressed.
