MOSCOW, December 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a law on the use of transparent ballot boxes in every-level elections in Russia. The document is published on the official information website.
Under the law, ballot boxes placed at polling stations and those taken to voters must be made of transparent or translucent material.
It was proposed as a legislative initiative by a group of United Russia members and supported by the Central Election Commission.
Transparent or translucent ballot boxes are already used in all the regional administrative centers, cities where the population numbers more than 100,000 and at some polling stations in smaller cities, Central Election Commission Secretary Nikolai Konkin said, adding that the equipment should be the same all over the country.
