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.

Predicting the Result of the Crimean Referendum

Tuesday, March 11, 2014, 13:18, by Euan MacDonald

Russia has an unhappy history of arranging referendums in other countries concerning their own independence. Take the example of Latvia:

“[In] July 14–15, 1940, rigged elections were held in Latvia and the other Baltic states.
