This paper presents analysis of Internet voting system logs of 2013 local municipal and 2014 European Parliament elections in Estonia. We study both sociodemographic characteristics of voters and technical aspects of voting. Special attention is paid to voting and verification sessions that can be considered irregular (e.g. inability to cast a valid vote or failed verifications). We observe several interesting phenomena, e.g. that older people are generally faster Internet voters and that women use the vote verification option significantly less than men.
