MOSCOW, September 9. (ITAR-TASS) – Moscow mayoral candidate Alexey Navalny demands annulling ballots which were signed not on polling stations, followed by holding runoff election.

Public Observer’s Staff has conducted 35 investigations in 118 incidents reported at the Moscow mayoral election, said staff member Oleg Bocharov.

He said that there were suspicions that on two accounts ballot boxes had extra ballots stuffed into them after the polling stations were closed. It was later determined that these sheets were ballots produced by the optical scan voting system and everything was accounted and confirmed by observers. The Public Staff has recorded 22 infractions during vote count through webcam footage.
