Watch: Putin squirms as voting machine rejects his ballot
Vladimir Putin suffered an awkward few seconds after a voting machine in Moscow's mayoral election rejected his ballot. It happened on Sunday in front of reporters at the Russian Academy of Sciences, which was being used as a polling station. Russia's president watched as the device twice spat out the paper in the full gaze of the press, prompting a squirm from the 65-year-old. But Putin persisted and the machine eventually accepted his vote, much to his apparent relief.
