The event is timed to the Single Voting Day
On September 6, on the eve of the Single Voting Day, which is September 8, 2019, the academic workshop "Digitalization of the Electoral Processes. Humanitarian Dimension" on innovations in the election process was held in the Radisson Collection Hotel.
The event was attended by the Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin, Sergey Kiriyenko, First Deputy Head of the Presidential Executive Office of Russia, Ella Pamfilova, Chairman of the Central Election Commission of the Russian Federation, Nikolai Bulaev, Deputy Chairman of the Central Executive Commission, as well as representatives of the Central Election Commissions from more than 30 foreign countries.
As part of the display of innovative solutions in the electoral process, RTLabs, together with Rostelecom, presented digital services for voters implemented on the Single Voting Day on the Government Services Portal and in the Government Services mobile application.
In “My Election" section of their member area users can always and at any place receive information on the timing of the election campaigns, the candidates, election commissions and their polling station, as well as select a convenient polling station using the “Mobile Voter” service. For voters who, due to health reasons, cannot come to the polling station on the election day, an opportunity was given for the first time ever to file an application for voting at home in electronic form.
A pilot model of using the Unified Biometric System for verification of voters as part of the electronic voting concept on the Government Services portal was also demonstrated at the Company booth.
