The official statement of Crimea:
Voter participation in Crimea was 81.36 % according to the head of the election commission of the Verkhovna Rada of Crimea, Mykhailo Malyshev.
“By 8PM, 1,250,426 persons cast their ballots. This excludes the results from Sevastopol.
Counting the ballots from Sevastopol, 1,724,563 persons voted,” he said.
Let’s do the math: 1,724,563 – 1,250,426 = 474,137, the number of persons who voted in Sevastopol.
Let’s look at the statistical website of the city of Sevastopol:
At the end of last year, Sevastopol’s population was 385,462, counting children, that are not eligible to vote.
474,137 – 385,462 = 88,675
– the increase in the population during the referendum.
474,137 divided by 385,462 multiplied by 100 equals 123% of Sevastopol’s population who voted for the annexation of Crimea to Russia.
