MOSCOW, September 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Sunday elections in the majority of Russian regions are proceeding relatively calmly, with no serious violations, experts told ITAR-TASS.
“In general, the voting proceeds normally. No resinous violations have been reported. Neither have been registered too many complaints,” said Oleg Matveuchev, Professor of the Higher School of Economics.
Mikhail Vinogradov, the head of the Petersburg Politics Fund, said that the number of violations would be different in different regions, including in what concerns early polling. “But so far, there are a few of them /violations/,” he said.
Vinogradov also noted a poor voter turnout. “The voter participation is law, as was expected, bearing in mind the lack of drama in these elections,” he said, adding that a relatively poot turnout was “a guarantee against ghost voters and ballot box stuffing.
