The 13th parliamentary election happened at a time when internet social networks have become important platforms for party campaigns and have also heightened anxieties over potential interference by Russia in the election processes of various states. To determine whether these fears are well-founded, several organisations in the Latvian community conducted monitoring of social media, as well as traditional media and residential post boxes. Immediately after the election, PROVIDUS and the Baltic Centre for Media Excellence commissioned the research centre SKDS to perform a public opinion poll. The aim of the poll: to determine the factors which could have affected voters’ decisions in the 6 October 2018 election.
