Winning option: 'No'.
"Russia’s Central Election Commission (CEC) will carry out a probe into why over 500,000 people who had received absentee ballots never took part in the December 4 parliamentary elections, the Izvestiya daily reported on Friday citing CEC member Sergei Danilenko. Earlier, Danilenko told RIA Novosti that over 1,700,000 absentee ballots had been handed to voters, but only 1,260,000 people used them.
“We are now analyzing the situation in each constituent member [of the Russian Federation],” Danilenko said.
“We will look into the reasons why people who probably wanted to vote did not do so,” he said. The official did not rule out that some CEC members will go to Russian regions to investigate the matter on the site.
The ruling United Russia party won the State Duma election with nearly 50 percent of the vote, followed by its closest rival, the Communist Party, with 19.2 percent." http://en.ria.ru/society/20111209/169506919.html
