The citizens interviewed by Al Jazeera in the capital city seemed to reflect a typical range of views toward the election.

Elena, 28, said she voted for Putin "because for today [he] is the only candidate to be president of our country ... did a lot of good things during his last time and he can do more this time once again ... he's more powerful as a human."

Vladimir, a 31-year-old philosophy lecturer, said he voted for Mironov yet was "not sure it will change the situation ... but I want that the [people in] power should know the opinion of the electorate".

Anatoly, a 66-year-old pensioner, said, "At my age, I don't need any changes. I want stability. I'm satisfied, and [people like] Zyuganov did nothing". 

Listen to the eight clips below for detailed explanations of voter preferences:
