Overall, the elections continue to go smoothly. There were several attempts at “double voting” at the polling stations, but they were all frustrated.

Thanks to the electronic electoral registry, cases of double voting are in principle excluded.
Vadim Kovalev also noted that some residents receive calls from strangers who introduce themselves as employees of the IT department and ask about various nuances of voting. The central office highlights: the DIT does not make this type of calls. “The traces of the calls lead to neighboring states,” added Vadim Kovalev.
