The Coalition’s mobile teams have visited more than 350 polling stations. The most common irregularities are: allowing voters to vote even though their documents are invalid; putting all ballots in the ballot box at the same time; Polling Station Committee members helping voters to vote in the voting booth; family voting; ‘professional’ assistants; agitation by political parties’ activists around polling stations; and the presence of political parties’ billboards within 50 meters of polling stations.
Mobile teams have reported to local election commissions more than 40 critical situations out of which the most frequent ones were not allowing the Coalition’s observers to enter polling stations; removal of blank ballots from polling stations (for example, Bihać: BM 003A046, Livno: BM106A010, BM106A011); not allowing observers to observe the counting of received ballots before the opening of polling station; observers voting at polling stations where they are not registered (Stolac, BM176A011); and voting on behalf of other people (Stolac, BM 176A007).
Regional offices of the Coalition have received more than 120 citizens’ complaints, out of which the majority refer to agitation of voters around polling stations, the presence of deceased people on voters’ lists, vote buying, the distribution of copies of ballots with marked political subjects, and the presence of political parties’ promotional materials around polling stations. At the same time, many citizens have called to ask whether they can vote with documents which have expired. Citizens also reported that two polling stations are located in places of worship. Citizens have reported 62 irregularities through podlupom.org.
The Coalition has reacted in critical situations first by contacting presidents of Polling Station Committees and Municipality Election Committees, as well as by filing complaints in the record of polling stations.
