In the Dnipropetrovsk region, after having arrived at one of the polling stations, the Opora observers witnessed that electoral safes had already been opened and a meeting was held at 6:50. ComElection commission at the other polling station began its meeting at 7:00. Vadym Golovchenko, the coordinator of the Opora, civil network, reported that to the 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“After having arrived at the polling station, the observers found that electoral safes had already been opened and a meeting had been already held at 6:50 in one of the polling stations, at the other station the session was held at 7:00. They appealed to law enforcement agencies. The commission explained, that their ID badges were in the safety lockers and they tried to do everything beforehand," Golovchenkosaid.
It is noted that the commission has faked the protocol of the morning meeting having filled in the false information.
It is also noted that there are facts of mass failure to issue the protocols of morning preparatory meetings, and the deficient supply of the big-sized ballot boxes.
There is also a suspicion that a number of commissions at the 33rd electoral district are now voting, despite that the majority of commission members had not received their authority, and hadn't taken the oath either.
