Voting in local areas will not be used in the September elections, said the head of the Central Election Commission, Ella Pamfilova, RBC correspondent reports.
According to her, only two forms will be used this year on a single voting day in all regions: voting directly on polling station, as well as voting in remote areas where field commissions will work.
“No voting on stumps is provided anywhere, in any region. We made this decision a long time ago, in the last campaign, and we are very consistently moving in this direction, — Pamfilova said at a CEC meeting.
According to her, “voting on stumps” it worked when there was a peak in the incidence of COVID-19, but now there is no need to return to this form of voting.
Pamfilova also said that the CEC decided to return the mask regime, and also asked “colleagues in the regions” analyze measures against the spread of infection.
Since the second half of July, an increase in the incidence of COVID-19 has begun again in Russia. If on July 15, 4.4 thousand new cases of coronavirus infection were registered per day, then on August 10 the figure was 23.7 thousand, follows from the data of the operational headquarters. This is the highest since the end of March. Almost 2.6 thousand people were hospitalized per day.
