Complaints about alleged violations during the elections were sent to the Central Election Commission (CEC) from 58 regions of Russia. As stated by the Ella Pamfilova, the Chair of the CEC, the Rostov Region and the Stavropol Territory are in the lead by the number of complaints.

On September 19-21, the CEC received 331 complaints about violations, Ms Pamfilova said.

According to her story, 31 complaints contained information on violations of the legislation. Should they be confirmed, the election outcomes may be cancelled by the court.

On the voting day, in the Dagestani village of Gotsatl, several young people broke the ballot box and started a fight. The election outcomes at the polling station No. 1669 were cancelled.
