OREANDA-NEWS A test vote in the DEG system before the presidential elections of Russia will be held in Moscow in early March, and options for a test vote can be sent by February 20, said Vadim Kovalev, head of the Public Headquarters for Election Observation in Moscow, head of the Observer Corps.

"Let me remind you once again about the test vote - in early March. Of course, we will immediately discuss and announce the date as quickly as possible… We will offer to send us the variants of the question (for a test vote - ed.) by February 20 to our mail. I think a little more than a week is more than enough time," Kovalev said at a meeting of the Public Headquarters for Election Observation in Moscow.

In turn, the head of the Department for the improvement of territorial administration and the development of smart projects of the Moscow government, Artyom Kostyrko, said that one polling station will open in each district of Moscow, where you can come, test the TAG or vote from your device.

"We will collect feedback, see how the system works, and at the election observation headquarters we will report on the readiness for the presidential elections of the Russian Federation," he said.

At the end of January, a public headquarters for monitoring the presidential elections of the Russian Federation was established in Moscow, headed by Kovalev, and Ilya Massukh and Alexander Asafov became his deputies. The election observation headquarters traditionally included a debriefing group, a mobile response group, an electronic headquarters, a video center, a contact center and an observer corps.

The Federation Council has scheduled presidential elections for March 17, 2024. The voting will last for three days: March 15, 16 and 17.
