The Russian Central Election Commission intends to develop a technology allowing any cellular user to get prompt returns from federal polls
The Russian Central Election Commission intends to develop a technology allowing any cellular user to get prompt returns from federal polls, CEC head Alexander Veshnyakov said on Monday. He pointed out that the CEC hit upon this idea as 70 million Russian citizens are clients of mobile networks. “If we are able to cope with this task, we will increase public control over the polls manyfold,” Veshnyakov said. He recalled that since 2003 the detailed returns from the polls have been made public on an Internet site within 24 hours. In the meantime, mobile phone subscribers outnumber by far the 20-million army of Internet users in Russia. Electronic equipment for voting that has already been developed and tested is another innovation. Last week the interdepartmental commission has approved this equipment after multiple tests by users and experts and suggested certifying and testing it in an experimental mode at the upcoming polls on October 8, 2006. “If the tests prove effective, we will consider the mass use of such equipment at the federal polls in 2007-2008,” Veshnyakov said.
