Vitsebsk resident Volha Kavalenka has submitted a complaint to the constituency election commission, after she received an invitation to vote bearing the name of her husband, who passed away in 2009.

The complaint was drafted by candidate Aliaksei Haurutsikau running in constituency No. 18.

“It is worth noting that her late husband was not invited to vote in the 2010 presidential election. However, during the previous general elections Volha Kavalenka received invitations meant for her deceased father and brother. After she visited the election commission, the voters’ lists were updated. However the lady soon received another invitation with her brother’s name,” says Aliaksei Haurutsikau.
