The results of elections in single-mandate constituencies in Moscow, taking into account electronic voting, differ significantly from the results without it. The Insider came to this conclusion after analyzing the data published on the CEC website.
Thus, in 8 out of 15 Moscow electoral districts, candidates from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Yabloko, or self-nominated candidates supported by Smart Voting won. However, after the CEC entered the results of electronic voting into the system, candidates in the capital received all mandates, supported by Mayor Sergei Sobyanin.
Thus, in the district 208, which covers the center of Moscow, according to the results of the usual voting, the candidate from Yabloko, Sergei Mitrokhin, won. He received 32,184 votes, while his main rival, Oleg Leonov, an “independent” candidate who previously worked as coordinator of the LisaAlert search and rescue unit, received 26,174 votes. But another 31,331 votes were brought to Leonov by electronic voting, and a total of 25% of voters who came to the polls voted for him, against 21% for Mitrokhin.
In constituency 197, the candidate from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Mikhail Lobanov, won – the “paper” vote brought him 46,129 votes. His rival, the propagandist Yevgeny Popov, received 34,305 votes. But in electronic voting, the majority voted for Popov, and in the end he won with 34% of the vote.
