Electronic voting via the portal of public services could replace early voting for municipal elections, the CEC tend to need to cancel «parole», but the alternative he needed, said the head of the CEC of Russia Ella Pamfilova.

The CEC head reminded that early voting is no longer applied in the elections at the regional level. «My colleagues generally inclined to radical method — do it (early voting in municipal elections – ed.) to cancel. The decision of the constitutional court can not do it, should be offered an alternative,» — said Pamfilova at the round table of the CEC for the elections on 10 September.

«Given the fact that rapidly progress we have 40 million already registered on the portal… maybe early voting to abolish itself and people who travel from your area via the portal of state services in electronic form to vote,» she said.

The CEC head said that the solution to this problem may be different. A number of experts and parties propose, for example, to make a closed list of grounds for early voting, to clearly define the categories of voters who can vote early.

«But we when in some regions did back a flood of complaints went that you are limiting our rights,» she added. Can cause disturbance of people and asked to provide a supporting document for early voting, said Pamfilova.

«Different options can be. Let’s think, are there any ways to completely refuse, including municipal elections and offer something alternative that would put the use of administrative resources, abuse and so forth,» — said the CEC head.

She said that now the level of early voting declined in the elections of this year the average rate was 3.5% in the last election campaign he sometimes reached up to 17%.

Of special note is the situation in the city of Barnaul, where early voting was 5.4%, she said. «We are unable to grasp, but we understand that the situation there was unhealthy. With early voting have to do something. Until we have answers to this question, we now formed their proposals,» — said Pamfilova.
