At the information center, the CEC launched the voting in the elections taking place this year.
The first polling stations for voting in the elections to the State Duma are open. The voting was started at the information center of the CEC.
Kamchatka and Chukotka were the first to open their polling stations to voters.
As the head of the CEC Ella Pamfilova noted, this moment is also exciting for the representatives of the Electoral Commission.
“This is the first time we are launching such a large-scale remote electronic voting, a new video surveillance system,” she said, expressing hope that nothing in the conduct of transparent and fair elections will fail.
Voting at elections of various levels in Russia will take three days: September 17, 18 and 19.
The Russian State Duma is elected for a five-year term under a mixed electoral system: 225 deputies are elected from party lists, another 225 – from single-mandate constituencies in one round.
