Transition to an Online Elections in Ukraine

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated that the issue of online voting in the elections is being worked out with two companies – "Microsoft" and "Apple"

The president promised that there would be parallel online voting and that this issue is currently being worked out. But at the moment it is unknown when this will start working. Also, this does not mean that people will not be able to vote as usual.

Zelenskyy also said that digital customs, online elections, and the census are being worked out with Microsoft and Apple.

Recall that it was also reported that the ministry of digital transformation wants to cooperate with Apple for the census to rent equipment for it. The census is planned for 2023.

At the same time, Chesno, a public movement, appealed to the secretary of the Kyiv city council with an initiative to hold a master class on personal voting for people's deputies. The Kyiv city council supported this idea and stated that they were ready to show everything. 

As you know, the cost of developing the terms of reference, project, equipment, and installation cost the capital's budget of $502 million.
