Political activist and blogger, Aleksei Navalny, who has created the Web projects “RosPil” and “RosYama”, has set up a new website “RosVybory” (Russian Elections). The blog is designed for people who would like to become election monitors during the presidential elections scheduled for 4 March. Navalny announced his latest project on his LiveJournal blog. 

People who wish to become election monitors may do so by filling out a form on the Rosvybory website. Those organizing the project then assign the volunteers, particularly to those polling stations they consider to be most prone to fraud. The election monitors will represent the parties that have put forward candidates for president: the Communist Party, Just Russia and possibly Yabloko, if the Central Election Commission were to allow Grigory Yavlinsky to register his candidacy. [Read more]
