Poll result shocks reporters

Reuters
Thursday, September 14, 2017

At polling station no. 333 in the Russian city of Vladikavkaz, Reuters reporters only counted 256 voters casting their ballots in a regional election on Sunday.

People were voting across Russia in what is seen as a dress rehearsal for next year's presidential vote.

Kremlin candidates for regional parliaments and governorships performed strongly nationwide.

When the official results for polling station no. 333 were declared, the turnout was first given as 1331 before being revised up to 1867 on Tuesday.

That is more than seven times higher than the number of voters counted by Reuters —with 73 per cent of the votes going to United Russia, the party of President Vladimir Putin.

Election officials at the polling station said their tally was correct and there were no discrepancies.
