Complaints and Violations >
Deputy Chairman of the Central Election Commission of Russia Nikolai Bulaev told reporters at a press conference that no serious voting violations that required the intervention of the Central Election Commission or employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs have been identified at the moment.
Mikhail Davydov, head of the Main Directorate for Ensuring Public Order and Coordinating Interaction with the Executive Authorities of the Russian Subjects of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, said at a briefing at the CEC that the police opened eight election-related criminal cases and revealed 156 administrative offenses.
Earlier on September 11, the head of the CEC, Ella Pamfilova, said that in the first two days of voting, the CEC received reports of possible shortcomings in the electoral field from ten regions. “Of the 72 remaining regions where elections are held, there were no such reports at all,” — she added.
Pamfilova also recommended that the results of the elections of heads of regions and legislative assemblies not be summed up before September 14, so that the commission could consider all complaints.
The office of the Commissioner for Human Rights of Russia did not reveal any serious violations during the voting, said Ombudsman Tatyana Moskalkova. “My overall impression— the elections were held at a high legal level, no serious violations of the electoral rights of citizens were recorded. The accessibility of voting is increasing due to the introduction of new ways of its implementation, in particular the DEG, which this year was implemented entirely on the Russian software»,— she wrote on Telegram.
Olga Kirillova, chairwoman of the Moscow City Electoral Commission, told reporters that they had received about 50-60 complaints about the remote electronic voting system. “I can’t say in percentage terms, but in absolute terms, about 50-60. These are the people who did not take care in a timely manner and did not update their account on mos.ru»,— said Kirillova.
According to Vadim Kovalev, head of the public headquarters for election observation in Moscow, the remote electronic voting system in Moscow worked normally for all three days, it successfully survived more than 10,000 DDoS attacks. “Over the entire period, we had more than 10 thousand DDoS attacks on our system. The system has withstood, withstood»,— TASS quotes Kovalev.

Deputies detected Western interference
Vasily Piskarev, head of the State Duma commission to investigate the facts of interference by foreign states, speaking on a direct line to the CEC online, said that he and his colleagues saw “attempts to interfere in elections in Russia using considerable material and information-manipulative resources.” He blamed these attempts on the countries of the West, which, in his opinion, “are trying to discredit our electoral processes,” and are also trying to “introduce their agents of influence, trained on their own bases, into the representative bodies of power.”
Piskarev stated that the activities “to promote candidates beneficial to the West are coordinated and financed mainly by five control centers from the USA, Great Britain, Germany, Sweden and Ukraine.” “They control about 100 media projects, which also work out tasks for the production of fakes about the activities of our armed forces during the NVO and in general about our country, incite separatist sentiments in the regions,” — said the deputy.
In his opinion, the amount of funding for “all this subversion” has increased several times in recent months and amounts to “about $30 million per month.”
Where political leaders voted
Russian President Vladimir Putin voted in the municipal elections in Moscow remotely and in advance, before the single voting day. “This is a very convenient, reliable form of voting. Who can and wants to use it— I recommend. But in any case, I hope for your active position and that you will make your choice,»,— said the president on September 10, quoted by the Kremlin press service.
The day before, Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev took part in the electronic voting in the Moscow elections. He voted using a tablet, the video was published by the United Russia party, of which he is the head. «Convenient»,— noted Medvedev after casting his vote.
Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin took part in electronic remote voting in the elections of municipal deputies in Moscow, the press service of the government reported on Telegram. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin also used the electronic system.
The head of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Gennady Zyuganov, did not use the opportunity to cast his vote through the electronic voting system and personally went to the polling station in Moscow. Chairman of the Yabloko party Nikolay Rybakov personally voted at the by-elections of deputies of the municipal councils of St. Petersburg.
The heads of the Kaliningrad, Kirov, Ryazan and Sakhalin regions, in particular, came to the polls.
How online voting took place in the regions
Residents of eight regions could vote electronically. In most of them, online voting was conducted for the first time: only in three subjects— Moscow, Kursk and Yaroslavl regions— remote electronic voting (DEV) was already used during last year's elections to the State Duma.
The peak of those voting electronically fell on the first hours of the first voting day. In the Pskov region, by 11:30 am, according to the surveillance portal, almost 50% of all those registered on the DEG— the number of ballots accepted was 5855 (out of the maximum possible 11878 ballots). Three people voted online in the first minute, the election committee of the Pskov region said. In the elections for the governor of the Yaroslavl region, from 8 to 10 in the morning, 26% of those who decided to vote online already voted, and in the Novgorod region— 12%.
By the end of the first day of voting, almost 60% of those wishing to vote electronically voted for candidates for governor of the Kaliningrad region. On the evening of September 10, in seven subjects (except Moscow, where it was not necessary to register in advance), the turnout for the DEG exceeded 60% of the 110 thousand registered. The turnout at the DEG is traditionally higher than the full-time one. For comparison: the final voter turnout for online voting in the Duma in 2021 was 93.21%, in Moscow— 96%.
There were no failures in the federal DEG system, Ella Pamfilova, head of the CEC, said following the results of the second day of voting. At the same time, she noted that “during the first day of voting, a large volume of various appeals was recorded in the DEG system from abroad, including 15 potentially dangerous impacts of a high degree of criticality.” In Moscow, observers and members of commissions on the first day reported a malfunction in the electronic voter list. The public election observation headquarters explained the system slowdown by a DDoS attack.
