We have received another documented evidence of the fact that school teachers and staff are “insistently asked” to vote early from Baranavichy. Moreover, those who have cast votes have to sign the special lists which are kept in the teachers’ room.


As it could be seen from the lists, quite many teachers “yielded to persuasion” by the third day of early voting.


Similar scenarios are likely to be played in other educational establishments. At the same time the picture of how Baranavichy students vote can demonstrate a lot. During three days 80% of voters voted at polling station # 16 (distance studies department of Baranavichy State University, Mayakouskaha 11).
