A queue of dozens of people wishing to take part in the voting in the presidential elections lined up near the Belarusian embassy in Moscow. Snapshots of the queues on Sunday, August 9, are published by users of social networks.

In the photo you can see at least 65 people queuing up.

More than 5.7 thousand polling stations opened in the republic at eight in the morning. At the same time, 44 sections began their work in other countries. In Russia, you can vote at diplomatic missions in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kaliningrad.

The turnout of voters in early voting for five days was 41.7%.

The Central Election Commission registered five candidates – Andrei Dmitriev, Anna Kanopatskaya, Alexander Lukashenko, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, Sergei Cherechnya. Two applicants – Viktor Babariko and Valery Tsepkalo – were denied registration.

Earlier, on July 16, the headquarters of Tikhanovskaya, as well as those who did not pass registration Tsepkalo and Babariko, announced that they were uniting.

The current president, Alexander Lukashenko, has been in office since 1994. If he wins, this will be the sixth term.
