This option is called the deferred decision function. It protects users from technical failures.

During e-voting, the postponed decision function will work. If the user has difficulties with the gadget or the Internet, he will be able to reopen the ballot and vote within 24 hours after its first download. You can return to the bulletin no earlier than three hours after it was opened. Users who download it after 16:59 on September 19 will not be able to return to the newsletter. When counting votes, the system will take into account only the last vote cast.

With the help of the deferred decision function, those users who encountered technical failures or were distracted during the voting will also be able to cast their votes.

The deferred decision feature was introduced this year. It was tested during a test of the electronic voting system, which took place in Moscow on July 29 and 30. Then you could return to your ballot until the end of the day when the vote was cast. But in order to use the function, those who voted late at night could also use it, it was decided to increase its validity period to 24 hours. Thanks to this, for example, those who wanted to cast their vote after returning from work, but faced technical problems, will be able to vote.
