About half a year ago a paper was posted here on HN about research which conclusively demonstrated vote manipulation in several provinces in Russia: https://arxiv.org/abs/1410.6059 The technique essentially uses the non-random distribution of round numbers in vote counts as indication that some sort of manipulation has taken place.

At the very least, it would seem prudent (or perhaps a fun project for someone) to check if election returns in this past election pass this test.
