There are total of 1400 wrong ballots for the Region Parliament. Although the cover of the ballot books prints as Mahaaungmyay, the ballots are for Chanmyaytharsi. The voters won’t know it anyway.

NLD and SNLD has sent letters of objection dated November 9 to UEC concerning advance votes of military .The advance votes were sent to Lashio constituency sub-election commission on Nov 8.
In the letter, it is stated that, the advance votes of 11815 arrived at the Lashio is too much for Lashio and it wasn’t reasonable that each and every advance votes were cast to USDP. It is an ugly behavior of destroying the free and fair election by advance votes.
NLD candidate Dr. Lin Htut of No-2 constituency said in every 3 parliaments, all the votes are cast to USDP. That is the No-1 reason. Next thing is when we examined the voting list, it was found that even the animals’ names in their houses were counted.
Before that advance votes arrived, Tun Shwe from NLD won significantly to USDP candidate. After counting the advance votes, USDP candidate has won again.
“When we got 50 or 60 votes in state parliament, USDP got 3800 where Dr. Sai of USDP competes. It is impossible and doubtful. That’s why we objected it,” said Dr. Liin Htut.
On November 8 evening, before the advance votes were arrived, the sealed ballot boxes were opened on the way to Township sub-commission office.

Ballot boxes were opened at the photocopier shop on the way to the township sub-election commission from Honant village.
“I am waiting for voting counting at the township sub-election commission. At that time, I was asked to follow. Upon arrival there, I saw the ballot boxes already opened. The ballot boxes were carried at about 8 pm. I arrived at about 8.15 pm,” a NLD’s polling representative said.
“They told us that they opened to make photocopying. They did not make sure that the ballot boxes were closed. They did not know what to photocopy. The way they do is not systematic. The commission would make decisions on this matter,” Sai San Min of the SNLD said.
Critics said that a legal action should be taken against as such matter might result in vote riggings in Lashio constituency.

Voting on behalf of other person found out in Htay Oo ward “There are 280 voters registration cards no one collected since yesterday. These cards were kept by village/ward commission chairman. We doubted that there may be people coming for these cards to vote on behalf of others. When we checked the suspicious man, and we found out that auxiliary fire brigade member Htay Thet Khaing of Ngar Se Taung, Targyitaung ward came to vote on behalf of Wai Phyo Hlaing’s registration card. I already doubted this polling booth. This is the ward of USDP joint chairman Htay Oo. When asked him (Htay Thet Khaing), he said secretary of ward commission gave the registration card. I submitted the matter to the polling booth officer and confiscated the card and denied voting. I doubted there may be similar incidences in other ward and villages,” said NLD township executive Saw Win who monitored the No-7 Tar Ngar Se Taung ward in Hinthada.

Scramble occurs in Maunghtaung village polling station in Butalin A scramble broke out at Maunghtaung village polling station in Butalin constituency where Tha Aye, the chief minister of Sagaing Region was running for because the polling stations are not sufficient enough for the voters to cast the votes. There were about 3,050 voters in Maunghtaung village, Butalin where only one polling station was set up. Up to about 2 pm in the afternoon, only 1,600 voters had already cast the votes. The situation is difficult for the polling staff to control. Local people said that they had received some evidences until 2 pm in this regard. “We close the door of the polling station. A long queue scrambled for the entrance to the polling station. We cannot supervise the voting process inside the polling booth. We reported on the situation to the commission, but no plan was in sight,” the polling agent of Maunghtaung village said. Hundreds of voters lost voting rights despite having complete evidence for voting, but they are trying to acquire voting rights during the election hours. “Some were included both the first voter list and the second, but were not found in the last and they were not allowed casting the vote. Those who were not included in the second time voter list applied for the Form 3, but they were not included in the last time voter list and so they lost voting rights. The sub-election commission wrote wrong personal data. Some families were not included in the electoral roll. All of those not included in the electoral registers would cast the votes for the NLD. No member of USDP was found in the objected voter list,” Thein Lwin, a Maunghtaung resident, said. The township commission urged them to vote only in 2020 though they applied with Form-3, said an official from Maunghtaung Village election sub-commission. Most polling stations in Butalin Township have seen a large number voters queuing to vote. In some places, voting could continue until late evening. In some places, USDP logos can still be seen. Moreover, some people are in the compounds of polling stations wearing hats and shirts featuring USDP logo. Many people have lost their votes. Some polling officers are also found to lack electoral knoweldge and rules. When exit poll results were conducted, about 50 locals said they voted for NLD. In our village, all of us except four or five stand by Mother Suu. We will vote for her,” said a local who has voted. ###### https://democracyforburma.wordpress.com/2015/11/07/myanmar-voting-queue-scene-election-day/ 10,000 mystery names added to Pobbathiri voter list National League for Democracy Lower House candidate Yee Mon (aka) Maung Tin Thit for Pobbathiri Constituency in Nay Pyi Taw says the final voter list for the township includes more than 10,000 extra names without any addresses.
