This paper is dedicated to the opinions of Russian scientists on the theoretical basics of electoral sociology. It provides an overview of the main positions on the key issues of electoral sociology: practical orientation, categorical and conceptual framework, methodological approaches, typology and modelling of political elections in the specifics of Russia. The most typical texts relevant to the topic have been selected from a large number of scientific and academic works. We conclude that Russian researchers emphasize the importance of electoral sociology that is connected with the development of the institution of elections. Experience, which is effective in social and political practice, appears to be poorly applied in “post-communist societies”, including Russia. Traditional for foreign science the explanatory schemes are being dramatically and fundamentally processed in accordance with the specifics of Russia.
