Abstract:     
Two specialists on the electoral geography of post-Soviet Russia analyze spatial voting patterns from the March 2000 Russian presidential election by reference to the underlying socioeconomic traits of Russia?s regions. In an effort to gauge the extent to which regional variations in voter turnout and preferences evident from previous elections persisted into the presidential election, the authors compare the outcome with results of a previous presidential contest (1996) and, where relevant, to the 1999 elections to the State Duma.
