Zhlobin ideology workers have published ‘instructional support to ideology workers in working collectives and for work with population at the place of residence’.

‘Ideologists! Remember about election to local Soviets’ Such posters in Socialist realism style would be a fine promo tool for the section ‘Ideological supplies of election campaign’. The section is full of such phrases as ‘to create working groups’, ‘work out a plan of actions’, ‘think over agitation and propaganda work’, ‘to carry out an outreach campaign’, ‘to organize public centers of ideological supplies to elections’, etc. Public centers are offered to set up in public places: Houses of Culture, clubs and libraries. Besides, ideologists are offered to master ‘modern political technologies’.

‘It is advisable to use all possible mass media as a tribune for persons elected to public offices, and also for creation of political advertising’, ideologists are recommended by their department.

Some ideologists willingly answered the call to climb a tribune. In Zhlobin-based newspaper Novy dzen of February 23 an interview of deputy director general of Belarusian metallurgical plant for ideology and work with personnel, chairman of Zhlobin district branch of Belaya Rus, Nadzeya Harkusha. The article about Belaya Rus, its activities and the elections was called A Tangible Civil Force.

The ideology department attracts attention to the fact that ‘in the agitation and propaganda work segmentation of voters is extremely important’.

‘Every category of voters has their peculiar features, and to make work with them effective, special ways of influence on them should be found (lists of voters should be made in every street and building in every constituency with the following information: name, surname, patronymic, address (with postal code, and code (not clear which code is meant)), a phone number, a number of constituency)’.
