Russia says online voting here to stay. Putin’s critics call it an untraceable ‘evil.’
The system also allowed people to change their votes — a feature that experts fear could be open to abuse, according to Mikhailova. Of 1.9 million online voters in Moscow, nearly 300,000 changed their votes — around 15 percent, much higher than system developers expected. However, observers did not have access to the data about how voters re-voted.
