You're reading: Poll: Ukrainians unwillingly agree to sell their votes at elections

About 83% of Ukrainians would not be prepared to sell their votes at the elections, according to the results of a study conducted by Democratic Initiatives Fund together with Kyiv International Institute of Sociology.

According to the results of the poll presented at a press conference
in Kyiv on Monday, 82.9% of the respondents would not sell their votes
at the parliamentary elections.

However, 1.5% of those polled expressed complete readiness to sell
their vote for any candidate for any amount of money; 5.2% said that
they are ready to sell their votes for a good price; 4.6% of people are
ready to give their votes if they are offered to vote for the candidate
they sympathize with; and 5.8% found it difficult to answer the
question.

At the same time, 53.2% stressed that they definitely condemn the
sale of votes for money, as you cannot sell your opinion. Moreover,
31.8% of respondents said that they have a negative attitude to the
purchase of the votes of electors, but understand it, as people have
different situations. Only 10.3% of those polled said that they have a
positive attitude regarding purchase of votes at the elections, as it
gives people a chance to gain money.

The poll was conducted from Sept. 18 to Oct. 4 this year. The
poll was held in 111 residential areas in all regions of Ukraine and
Crimea. 2,043 respondents participated in the poll. The poll’s margin of
error is 2.2%.
