One of the members said that the actual number of voters did not match the numbers mentioned in the protocols. "For instance, we had 20 over the day, and there were 70, according to the protocol", he said.
The same man said that at first, the committees counted the bulletins from preliminaries, and they heard that Alexander Lukashenko was winning there. On the other hand, most of the citizens who voted on the election day supported Svetlana Tsikhanouskaya.
Another representative of the electoral committee in Minsk said that on the election day, a lot of people voted for Tsikhanouskaya. Some other people who showed up at polling stations did not have passports, just a residence permit - so they could not vote, but their names were on the lists anyway. At that particular polling station, Lukashenko won the preliminary election, and Tsikhanouskaya won in the race on election day.
