2010 Mission to Belarus (Local Election)

On 25 April 2010, some 30 participants of the Election Observation: Theory and Practice Project observed the local election in Belarus. The observers covered mainly polling stations located in Minsk, however several observers reached the regions (Brest, Slonim, Mariyna Gorka). “Election Observation: Theory and Practice” project observers were cooperating with the Human Rights Centre “Viasna” and Belarusian Helsinki Committee in the framework of the campaign “Human Rights Defenders for Free Elections” in Belarus. Also, during the election day, the participants of the project were sharing their findings via Twitter which provided the opportunity for numerous Twitter-users to follow the election process during the local election in Belarus. The election observation report based on the findings of the EOTP monitors is in the attachment.
