Glenn Kates (@gkates) shares a link [1] to an election webcam video [2] from a polling station in the North Ossetian village of Chikola, which “appears to show ballot stuffing.” “They could just be testing the machine though,” @gkates adds [3]. Of the 91 comments on the video's YouTube page [4], the most popular right now is the one posted four hours ago by user rus1488rus [ru] and “liked” by 45 viewers: “To test [the machine], it's enough to feed it just one ballot )))”
