This year, more than 20 heads of regions, including Moscow and the Moscow region, and 20 regional parliaments were directly elected. A total of 4,127 elections at different levels were held throughout the country.

An analysis of the first results from regions where voting ended earlier and there are already data from electoral colleges shows that United Russia probably confirms its leadership status: its representatives in gubernatorial positions and appointed acting representatives are leaders in their regions.

According to the secretary of the General Council of United Russia, Andrei Turchak, the party is leading the regional elections in Siberia and the Far East. In some of them, United Russia can significantly improve the result, he predicts.

In addition, additional elections of State Duma deputies were held in four single-mandate constituencies. So far only the turnout is known there: according to the Central Election Commission, voters from Karachay-Cherkessia voted more actively than others (62%),

This year saw a record use of the online format in the elections: remote electronic voting (REV) was carried out on two platforms in 25 regions and spanned five time zones, from Kamchatka to Kaliningrad.

24 regions voted online on the federal platform, with more than 1.2 million registered voters. Moscow has its own platform, it was not necessary to submit an application to the DEG, voters could, during the voting process, decide the form of participation in the elections of mayor and municipal deputies in the TiNAO.

By the way, Russian President Vladimir Putin voted online in the mayoral elections in Moscow. “Electronic voting becomes more popular every year, expanding its geography. More and more voters trust it and take advantage of this opportunity,” said the Head of State. In the same way, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin elected him in the capital.

At noon, participation in the DEG on two platforms exceeded 3 million people. Nikolai Bulaev, deputy head of the commission, noted that “there has never been remote voting anywhere in the world.” “And I don’t know who will be able to afford it in the near future,” added the CEC vice president. He explained that SDR is a financially expensive procedure, but that is not the main thing. “It is not cheap from the point of view of the intellect that has to do it. Engineers, programmers and, in general, everyone who knows what the electoral process is, understand that organizing a vote like this on two platforms is an impossible task. for many countries,” he concluded.

This year, for the first time, new regions held elections under Russian law. During the voting process, the electoral commissions of the DPR, LPR, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions contacted the CEC information center, although not always successfully or on time. On Friday, a commission had to be evacuated in the Kherson region due to rocket fire, and on the night of September 10, a polling station was attacked with drones in the Zaporozhye region, none of the commission members were injured said the deputy. President of the CEC Nikolai Bulaev. He is sure that the kyiv authorities “tried to intimidate people.” The president of the Central Election Commission, Ella Pamfilova, described it as a terrorist act.

219 thousand observers were sent to work in the electoral colleges and in the territorial commissions, including 79,245 observers delegated by the public chambers and 92,083 by 14 political parties. As expected, United Russia prepared the largest number of “controllers” – almost 47 thousand people, in second place. active was the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (19,714), the first three on this list was closed by the Liberal Democratic Party (8,079).

In the Civic Chamber (OP) of the Russian Federation, a situational center operated on voting days, where information from public observers flowed and where briefings were held periodically. According to Maxim Grigoriev, head of the working group of the Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation on public control of voting, there are few serious violations in the elections, parties and candidates behave correctly, “although there are violations on the part of the candidates, especially in municipal elections.”

The Central Election Commission also noted that the largest election campaign in the last five years took place without serious violations, as evidenced by data on appeals to the Central Election Commission (less than 300 in the first two days) and statistics from the Ministry inland. Affairs. “If we look back, now it is heaven and earth,” Ella Pamfilova said.

However, the head of the commission urged colleagues in the regions not to relax and respond in the most severe manner to violations, especially in terms of the use of administrative resources. “Before the presidential elections, everything must be burned with a hot fire,” the head of the CCA proposed.

These elections became a kind of basis for the future in a technical sense: the Central Election Commission tested a digital version of the “Elections” system of the State Automated System and the “Stop Double” system, which does not allow voting more than once . “Based on the test results we will identify the main obstacles, draw conclusions and apply them to voting in the presidential elections in all polling stations,” said Nikolai Bulaev.

Tomorrow at noon, the Central Election Commission is scheduled to announce the preliminary results of a single day of voting. Ella Pamfilova has already urged the electoral commissions of the regions, as in previous years, not to rush to determine the final results, to carefully consider all complaints and appeals so that no one doubts the legitimacy of the elected candidates.
