Putin is going to announce, probably very soon, that the separatist regions he set up in Ukraine have voted to join the Russian Federation. What percent of vote to join Russia do you think he will choose? 95% 82% ? % We'll see who gets closest to the right %.

For what it's worth, he chose 97% for vote in Crimea to join Russia in 2014.

My guess is 94%

Doesn’t matter, 95% of those votes were under the watchful eye of the Russian troops.

Yeah, I know it doesn't matter. I just meant to do something like having a betting pool without the bets.

Are there photographs of the police or soldiers bringing the ballots to somebody's door?

This is good enough for me:

I also think it's funny he doesn't just say 100%, but has to make it "believable". As if...

93%

I saw a video of a ballot being handed out. It went by quickly but all I saw was a large font DA and a check box. There didn’t appear to be a NYET. ;>

The Russian state news media was reporting what it described as results showing enormous levels of support for joining Russia in four occupied territories. Tass, the Russian news agency, reported 92.68 percent in favor in Zaporizhzhia, 86 percent in Kherson in the south, and 93.95 percent in Donetsk and 98.53 in Luhansk in the east.

I should have taken into account that there are four regions that are voting but didn't so I added up the percentages and divided by four. It came out very close to 92%. To be more accurate I would have needed to factor in the population of the different regions but that was too much hassle. :-)

abevilac came in closest at a guess of 93%. Congratulations!
