Active Citizen

Electronic citizen poll system


The site is used for carrying out polls among different groups of Moscow citizens in electronic form on the subject of the city’s development. In November 2017 the project adopted a blockchain technology. It is realized with the help of the Ethereum platform that runs on the basis of smart contracts and is an open-source program available on GitHub which guarantees the transparency of the solution. Every poll is secured by a smart contract where the storage and count of votes takes place.

Vote checking is carried out using a unique user identifier – a randomly selected number assigned to a user when he registers in the project. This identifier is used by the user himself to check the results of his voting in the huge amount of available vote results. A new user is registered using a mobile application and entering his mobile phone number and personal data.

In February 2018 the platform Active Citizen was used to launch a pilot project “Electronic house” to organize online meetings of homeowners.

The open source Active Citizen can be used by any federal subject of the Russian Federation; additionally it will require a redesign as well as integration with external systems.
