The observers from the Movement For Freedom (MFF) acting within ‘The Right of Choice’ campaign have photographed the same persons voting at several different precincts.
“The so-called ‘merry-go-rounds’ is a proven method of ballot rigging,” commented on these events Juraś Hubarevič (Yuras Hubarevich), a candidate for MP of the House of Representatives from the MFF in No. 108 Kalinouskaha Constituency. “The same persons are used at several precincts for dummy voting. This is a flagrant violation.”
According to him, the ballots cast by the “merry-go-rounders” are used for the benefit of the pro-government candidate and serve to overstate the turnout for the election commission.
‘The Right of Choice’ observers have noted earlier that — according to their calculations — the number of voters in some precincts does not coincide with the final daily reports (according to the election commission, much more voters vote each day than the observers are recording). This means that election commissions are preparing for the possible ballot stuffing — such ballots will take the place of ‘virtual’ voters, who appear in the reports, but did not in fact come to vote.
