Rostelecom told about the initiative on April 7. They explained that they are ready to create the necessary program for distant voting if necessary. Michail Oseevsky said that if the government asks for this, they will use the united biometric system. Everything depends on the requisitioner.
In this development, they may use the operational system Aurora, the website of public services and other innovations that will make the voting system clear and transparent.
Aurora is an operational system for population census that Rostelecom plans to integrate into tablets till July 2020. The order was made in August of 2019. The government thinks of other usage of these tablets, as the price of the work is more than 11 billion rubles. There will be about 360 000 tablets. The negotiations are still being conducted now.
It may be used in educational, health and other spheres of the country. If it is successful, the technologies will be spread all over Russia.
