According to a number of members of Mahiliou local election commission, election officials have been engaged in adding ballots to ballot boxes during lunch break and immediately before the end of the day, when the slot is sealed for the night.

An anonymous member of polling station located in local school  # 42 claims the violations are carefully disguised by the election commission members.

“We received a call from a member of election commission located in school # 37, who claimed that the station had been visited by a number of people willing to cats their ballots. However, their names were not found on the voters’ lists. At the same time, the election commission members issued new ballots,” says civil activist Uladzimir Novikau.
