It was told about a party held in 2015, the campaign of municipal elections in the town of Lomonosov. According to him, the photocell Cohiba was extremely sensitive to any, even the most inconspicuous marks in the cells of the ballot.

It turned out that unscrupulous head of the election Committee is enough to put the dots in the graphs the right candidates to ensure the desired result. So, if voting will add to the invisible point my “check mark” COHIBA will consider it voting for the “right” candidate. If this option is set in another square, then a COHIBA will count the spoiled ballot because both of two levels.
