Videos Have Emerged Of People Overtly Stuffing Ballots To Sway The Russian Election

By Collin Gossel

The Russian presidential elections were held on March 18, and if you haven't heard much about them, it's because incumbent President Vladimir Putin was pretty much a shoo-in. The returning fourth-term President had little competition, and observers continue to question whether the elections are as free and fair as the Kremlin would have the world believe. It's hard to buy that all Russians are as enthusiastic about Putin's return as election results suggest, especially considering the numerous videos of individuals blatantly stuffing ballot boxes at polling sites all over the country.

The clips emerged online after the fact, and many of these people are shameless in their attempts to cheat the system.
