Independent observer Halina Yarashevich registered a rapid growth of the number of the electors who decided to vote at home at precinct #24 in Baranavichy-Eastern election constituency #6. On the election day, 23 September, this number increased from the initial 47 people to as many as 362.

As a result of such a great number of home-voters the turnout at the polling station increased to 54%.

On 24 September Halina Yarashevich applied to the procuracy, asking to hold a check-up concerning the possible forcing to vote at home. She asks to give a legal assessment to the discovered facts and take measures of prosecutorial reaction towards violators of the electoral legislation.
