After the end of the vote counting at polling station No. 57 in Barysaŭ the members of the PEC refused to inform the observers about the results. As reported by an independent observer Pavel Daineka, nobody was let out of the polling station, while the chair of the commission was phoning either to the executive committee or a higher election commission to report about the results of the calculation.

When the results were announced for the first time, the number of votes for Tatsiana Karatkevich was 219, but after the talk it decreased to 77. When the observer asked how it could happen and asked to show him the final protocol, deputy chair answered that she had passed the protocol to the chairman and the latter had taken it to the territorial election commission.
