At some precincts of Hrodna-Tsentralnaya electoral constituency members of precinct commissions refused to give information about the results of early voting. In particular, the head of precinct commission #18 situated in Hroda State technical college #49 twice ignored the direct order of a representative of the constituency electoral commission to give such information. A similar situation could be observed at polling stations #4 and #41. The information was received by observers only after insistent calls to the constituency commission.

The percent of early votes is impressing. 592 out of 1800 electors voted early at precinct #5 of Hrodna-Tsentralnaya electoral constituency, where the commissions did not want to register an observer from the BPF Party. At precinct #42 1000 out of 2050 electors voted early as well. At precinct #21, where there are many students, this number is even higher – 58%.
