The Moscow City Government launched e-referendums through the app on your smartphone


    Muscovites will be able to participate in the management of the city via smartphones. To do this, on the initiative of Sergei Sobyanin was developed a special application for electronic referenda “active citizen”.

    Активный гражданин
    Active citizen

    As planned, the vote will be evaluated weekly questions on topical urban topics from transport and land improvement to health and education. Making decisions, the authorities will be based on the results of electronic referenda. Appendix “Active Citizen” is already available for download for iOS devices and Android.

    Pre-registration for participation in the project is open from late April – application left more than 140 000 people. Officials estimate that by the end of 2014, users of the new service will be up to 1 million Muscovites.

    will initiate electronic referendums by the mayor, members of the Moscow government and regional authorities, on the basis of the priority tasks for which officials must seek the opinion of the citizens. City Hall also plans to monitor and to vote on urban topics that are widely discussed on the Internet.

    The application provides different levels of polls – citywide, district and county. The user can specify in your profile multiple addresses marking the areas in which the fate he wants to take special participation – this may be the place where a person grew up, live or work.

    Involve citizens in the project will allow more game elements. For completing each survey or other activity (filling profile, inviting friends, the spread of information about the project on social networks), users earn points, which can then be redeemed for various urban services – for example, parking clock, travel, tickets to theaters and museums. To get access to the store bonuses, the user must dial 1000 points and get the status of “active citizen”.

    In the first week of voting Muscovites will be able to choose to live and what time you need to translate the clock, determined with landscaping protected areas, will speak on the issue of organizing street trade. Parallel through the application starts collecting bids for landscaping yards within the “Million Trees”.
