According to the results of voting day, March 31 nearly a quarter of a million ballots were declared invalid because conscious of their damage, said the head of the Central election Commission Tatyana Slipachuk.

According to her, the reason for this, and sometimes illegal actions of citizens: “the Ballots are deliberately spoiled”.

“But it is not a manifestation of the position. It is, in fact, offended a large number of people: employees of the polygraph combine Ukraina, which worked even at night, in time to print and pack, the people who transported the ballots, in the end, members of election commissions, that the ballots received, issued, and then believed. These are our fellow citizens, acquaintances, relatives and friends. Let me remind you also that the printing of ballots occurred at the expense of the State budget, and this is also our money,” she wrote.

“Voting or not voting for a particular candidate whose name is on the ballot is a personal decision. If you still come to the area, then don’t break the law, but deliberately make your choice” – summed up the head of the CEC.
