MOSCOW (Sputnik) — He added that certain states preserved preferences in the elections under the current system, stressing, however, that it was an exclusive matter of the US citizens.

"The problem is, first of all, with the archaic electoral system of the United States," Putin said during his annual press conference.

In the US electoral system, individual states administer elections, including those for federal offices such as president and Congress. Laws in some US states prohibit international observers at polling stations.
