On 16 August 2019 the Central Election Commission of the Russian Federation held its 221st regular meeting.

Opening the meeting, Deputy Chairperson of the CEC of Russia Nikolay Bulaev asked colleagues from the regional election commissions to share their impressions about the use of new digital services on the public services portal "Gosuslugi". In particular, the service for submission of applications by voters for inclusion in the voters list at the actual location.

Valery Samokrutov, Chairperson of the Election Commission of the Kurgan region, shared his experience of using the portal.

"The service, which is now provided on the portal, is very convenient. It is easy to find a polling station where one would like to vote. The interface is simple, information about processing of the application comes very quickly. The portal provides information about the candidates for the post of the Governor," he said.
