    CHISINAU, March 1 (RIA Novosti's Vladimir Novosadyuk) - Moldova is having a parliamentary election March 6, Sunday next. The event will test pioneer information technologies on the Electronic Poll system, the Central Election Commission press center said to Novosti.

    A polling station in Chisinau, Moldova's capital, will use a cutting-edge arrangement to pass votes to a central computer within a split second.

    We turned for details to Moldova's Information Technologies Department. The new system is its experts' brainchild. This is what they said.

    Every voter will get a special ball-pen with a built-in micro video camera to fix a note in the ballot paper near a particular hopeful's name. The information is immediately computerized, so the election returns are ready to publish as soon as the voting finishes.

    The system may spread throughout the country if parliament makes relevant amendments in the Election Code. The Central Election Commission does not rule out the high-tech prospect.
