Automated 'Election' system to be used in Azerbaijan's municipal elections
Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 21 / Trend , H.Valiyev/
Electoral commissions, which will hold municipal elections, will be equipped with necessary computer equipment and communications. In this regard, Aztelecom Production Unity (PU) of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology will carry out work to provide polling stations with reliable, uninterrupted telephone service and Internet access.
The Central Election Commission (CEC) will post a list of candidates for municipal elections on the website of the "Elections" information center. A search system will be available on the website, through which you can search a candidate by name, by party affiliation and on constituencies.
The voting will be available online on the CEC website, which will allow voters to be able to interactively track the results, received by the Central Election Commission from the polling stations.
Information from each polling station will be transferred to the district election commissions, and then to an information network of the "Election" center.
The State Automated Information System (SAIS) "Election", used at the Azerbaijani Parliament, will be used to automate the voting process.
The software consists of two modules. The first is for information items of district election commissions, the second - for the automation of a workstation of the Information Center's administrator. The main functions of the system are: reflecting the vote, the entering protocols to the database computer, entering names of deputies and political parties to the computer, and summarizing the outcome of protocols of district election commissions.
According to the CEC, the municipal elections will be held in mid-December.
