An initiative has been introduced for consideration of the deputies of the lower house of parliament of the State Duma, according to which video surveillance is required not only for voting at elections, but also for counting votes.
«In accordance with the project, video surveillance will be possible not only during voting, but also when counting votes in the territorial election commission,» the author of the initiative, the deputy from the party «United Russia» Pavel Krasheninnikov said.
Currently, CCTV cameras are allowed to be placed in rooms where citizens make their choice. Lawmakers also offer to expand the list of places where surveillance will be established.
So, if the camera is installed in the counting places, you can count on the elimination of possible errors, as well as exclude falsification in the counting of votes.
