The Commission agreed to put the transparent ballot boxes in all polling stations if there are sponsors to fund this initiative.
According to a member of the Vitebsk Regional Commission Nicholas Selivashko, transparent ballot boxes in the Vitebsk region already used in the election, but only partially and only in two areas — Gorodok in the Railway area of Vitebsk.
Mr. Selivashko says that he offered to make transparent ballot boxes, even when I worked in the regional commissions in the local elections, but then his colleagues did not support. He also mentioned that the day before the last presidential election even the money out to manufacture transparent ballot boxes — but then the commission did not agree, and money was spent on something else.
Now the Commission agreed to the experiment — so it was decided at the last meeting.
