Moscow authorities have opened an entry to participate in online voting on constitutional amendments. The transparency of the voting will be ensured by the blockchain technology, the capital’s mayor’s website says.
Voting will take place from June 25 to 30. In order to fill out the voting ballot, the citizens must register on the portal of public services or on the Moscow mayor website.
The message indicates that the blockchain will ensure the anonymity and encryption of each vote:
“There are two encryption keys: one has the user, and the second is divided into several parts and is kept by different participants until the end of the voting.”
In addition to Moscow, electronic voting will take place in the Nizhny Novgorod region. Also, St. Petersburg, Krasnoyarsk Territory, and Karelia claimed to vote in this format.
Earlier, the State Duma proposed creating an all-Russian blockchain system of remote voting.
