This work is devoted to the study of the elections in Russia (2007-2016). The author tries to find any connection between socio-economic characteristics of the voters and the way they vote. Also within the framework of the ecological approach the issue of the natural spatial heterogeneity of the population and its influence on the voters’ choice is considered. In addition, the stability of electorates of different parties over time is studied. Big data analysis, as well as the original survey data is used. Ecological theory is not confirmed, at the same time special cases of applicability of socio-psychological and rational-instrumental theory are revealed. During the analysis an indirect conformation of falsification of election results is detected.
