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 carried to photocopier shop and opened in Lashio constituency
Despite ballot boxes had to be kept to the sub-election commission, they were carried to the photocopier shop in Lashio constituency where Vice-President Dr Sai Mauk Kham was running for and then they were opened.
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.

UEC seal and ink-pad intentionally kept at No 14 polling station in Hlaingthayar The voters are forced to seal the ballot paper in use of ink-pad in addition to UEC seal at No 14 polling station in No 7 ward, Hlaingthayar, Yangon Region. Much ink appeared on the block of the ballot and it stained UEC logo, the eligible voters said. If truth be told, ink already remains on UEC seal. No need to use ink-pad again. The stained ballots were not exchanged with new ones. No one objected to this matter. 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.

Election News Update: A voter named U Sein Win (45) from Kayinsu village, Kawhmu Township died on the way to hospital as he fell down just after casting his vote at No.2 polling station, says the township election commission. Impatient poll staff replaced in Hlaing A polling staff was replaced with another one because of being impatient and a loud shout at the queue at the polling station of No 1 BEHS in Hlaing Township, Yangon.

Half of people in Oakshitkon village, Yaynanchaung lose voting rights Half of the people in Oakshitkon village, Yaynanchaung township, Magway Region lost voting rights as they were not included in the electoral roll in the first time voter list and they did not get voter identity cards in the last time voter list. Regarding this matter, Soe Htut Oo of sub-election commission said that those who were not found in the voter list on the poll day would lose voting rights. 12191788_633327453476607_6374653377900829314_n UEC member warns Upper House MP wearing USDP uniform Saw Ba Hlaing, member of Union Election Commission, warns Upper House MP Saw Kyaing Htwe who was wearing USDP uniform at No 1/2 polling station in No 7 ward, Hpa-an. 12187942_633329106809775_1073591843273942062_n At Daw Noe Ku Polling Station in Loikaw Township, 32 lower house ballot papers without signatures of polling officer were given to voters, according to the township election sub-commission office. Those ballots were regarded as “invalid”. 12189573_633330796809606_126472389042870083_n News update: Eligible voters from Yetsaute, Southern Shan State, will ask the UEC to extend voting time if all voters cannot finish casting vote before 4 pm, sources say. “Families of Light Infantry regiments, Ba Htoo fort town and the town cast advance vote. They have been asked to cast advance votes as they have military operations. Another thing is irresponsibility of township election commissions. We will ask to extend voting time as there have voters left to vote after 4 pm. Some social activists and people from Ma-Ba-Tha will lead us and the rest are locals. We expected about 3,000 voters will be left to cast the vote as there have between 500 and 1,000 eligible voters in one polling station alone and in Yetsaute, there have 76 polling stations,” said Sein Win, local activist from Ywangan. There have many light infantry divisions in Yetsaute and Ba Htoo fort town and the families of the soldiers are cast advance votes. In Yetsaute, there have 76 polling stations in seven wards and 60 village tracts and over 100,000 eligible voters. 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. The second announcement of the voter list for the township had more than 59,000 voters but the final roll included about 70,000 voters, Yee Mon said. ############# Advance votes collected till 7:30 p.m. in Aung Lan On the final date of advance vote, advance vote from elders and sick people were collected till 7:30 p.m. in a ward of Aung Lan Town, although it is announced to vote by 6 p.m. The ward is Sangyaung ward, in which USDP candidate Tin Aung Chit for Lower House Parliament will come and vote. Moreover, while collecting the advance votes, only the polling station representatives of USDP were included, not those of NLD. Regarding the initial news, Aung Lan, which has 175872 eligible voters, had advance voters of 3501. But as 35 advance-vote-eligible villages cannot be contacted yet, the advance vote lists of these villages are still unknown, according to Aung Lan Township Election Commission Office. ####### As a lot of identity cards for eligible voter were scattered on the east road of Mandalay Palace moat, Aung Myay Thar Zan Township Commission regarded not to allow voting only with identity cards for eligible voter in five polling stations of that constituency. The case occurred at about 3 p.m. of November 7. To prevent frauds in voting, Township Commission decided to allow voting with national identity card (or) family registration, in addition to identity cards for eligible voter. If both are not brought, one and above people from the ward have to recommend him or her for voting. Five polling stations of that constituency have 8775 eligible voters. Although the constituency also has 14 military polling stations, the number of eligible voters is only over 6600. 12219545_926658084038482_3398874520496971871_n 11039054_926657997371824_7098422042571108677_n 12185570_926658124038478_2731506638188710903_o ######### Maubin found advance ballot books which imprinted the USDP already The advance ballot books in Konsu Village in Maubin Township found that the USDP boxes were already imprinted. Kyaw Kyaw Lin, the assistant polling station agent said, “We didn’t notice it earlier. When we saw that the books have already imprinted the USDP boxes, it’s got eight ballots already. Then we asked them to remove such ballot, they did. We suspect that there might be similar ballots tomorrow.” Likewise, there are 100 voters who do not on the voter list in the village in Malatto village tract in Maubin. “Those who was not on the voter list in first time also do not involve in the latest list. However, they will have a chance to vote tomorrow by showing the National Identity Card,” said an NLD member from Malatto Starting from November 6 morning, Zayat-kwin village sub-commission members, USDP representative and NLD polling station representative collected advance votes in Thayat-kone village group, Hlegu Township, and three advance vote ballots in commission member’s hand were found to be already stamped for USDP although the voter hadn’t vote yet. These three ballots were tried to hand over to the voter. Polling station representative of NLD found out the case and prevented, then reported to village sub-commission. ############ A commission member from Pantanaw dismissed for letting vote to ineligible voters A member of commission was dismissed in Pantanaw Township for letting vote to the ineligible voters, the National League for Democracy reported to the commission. Myat Thura from the NLD said, “I reported to the commission that twenty ineligible voters casted the advance votes in the east ward. Then, the township commission warned the ward commission. And Min Thu who issued the ballots was dismissed. What is more, the commission member Khin San Win does not allow polling station agents checking collecting the advance voting. Therefore, the candidates helped them in the processes.”

NLD asks disenfranchised voters to stay peaceful The National League for Democracy has asked voters to control themselves if they are denied the right to vote. It said it was the duty of election commission staff to allow citizens to vote and they could face action if that right was denied. But the NLD said there was a prospect of voters being denied their rights on Sunday. The statement said: “The Union Election Commission has announced the nationwide voter lists. Our party is trying to correct the list but it is still wrong and some voters have the potential to lose their voting rights. “People may respond with anger. They need to understand that it is a response wanted by some people and organisations. People need to avoid those actions, especially near polling stations.” CR.

Vote fraud in advance votes happened in Yangon Region, Ayeyawady Region, Magway Region and Shan State on November 6. Likewise on November 7, vote rigging and forcing to cast the advance vote still happened in Yangon Region, Ayeyawady Region, Taninthayi Region, Sagaing Region, Shan State, Kayin State and Kayah State. The cases on November 7 include open envelops of the advance ballots of the military personals, casting the vote by the in-charge of the police station on behalf of all policemen of the police station; collecting the advance votes from the villages without informing the polling station agents; allowing authorities from Prison Department to enter the secret voting room, record and take photos; and imprinting the ballots of a policeman by the another police in the secret voting room. Open advance ballots envelopes of military men found in Kalaw, where the General Secretary of USDP Tin Naing Thein is competing When the Kalaw Township election commission received the advance ballots of the military men who are away from the constituency, it has been found that the envelopes are opened. In fact, the General Secretary of the Union Solidarity and Development Party Tin Naing Thein is running as a candidate for the Lower House of Kalaw Constituency. The chairperson of the election campaign team of National League for Democracy Tin Hla Oo told that over 200 secret envelops of advance ballots of the military men were found opened on November 7. Tin Hla Oo said, “We held a meeting at the township commission office. They showed the ballot boxes are closed. Then, the advance ballots are transferred into the boxes. There was no problem in the advance ballots came from the city. However, a military representative was closing the envelopes. He said that envelopes were opened when it comes from the front line because the soldiers were not serviceable to close them. There were 1381 advance ballots. I wanted to see an advance ballot which is already opened. But I didn’t get chance to do that because he said it’s secret voting system.” The candidate representative Thin Maung Maung told that the polling station agents were not allowed to enter since they don’t have the Form No. 8. As a matter of fact, the commission gives the Form No. 8 only when all the polling station agents come to take it together from the commission. Therefore, they face a lot of difficulties there. Thin Maung Maung said, “The representatives in the villages and wards do not understand the electoral law. They think it as an opposition party. We need to talk with the commission for all cases happened. Another thing is we arranged one to three polling station agents in a polling station. On November 5, they did not allow the polling station agents enter into the room since they don’t have the Form No. 8. However, they allowed other parties’ agents. They could not give sound reason for that. What is more, they did not give the Form No. 8 if all polling station agents do not come together.” There are 119,044 eligible voters in, 131 polling stations, 11 downtown wards, 25 village tracts and 256 villages in Kalaw Constituency. NLD complained about police officer Nyunt Aung casted advance votes on behalf of eight policemen in Kyaungkone NLD has sent complaint letters to the police offices and the commission about police officer Nyunt Aung who casted advance votes on November 4 for the other eight policemen in Hleseik Village in Kyaungkone Township, Ayeyawady Region. The police officer casted the advance ballots not only of his owned but also of others in the same police station. Therefore, NLD has sent complaint letters to the police offices of township, district and region and the branches of the election commission. Khin Zaw Lin, the candidate for Upper House said, “It was on November 4 during collecting the advance ballots that officer Nyunt Aung came to vote. He casted the advance votes not only for him but also for other eight policemen from his police station. We have informed about that, both written and orally to the commission. We don’t want to impact him since he is a civil servant and has a family. However, such act violates the electoral law Section 57 and 59. It’s ironic since he has to safeguard the law as a police. We have the eye witnesses for that case. Now it is under investigation.” Advance votes still being asked from YCDC workers in 10/South Ward, Thaketa Township on November 7 Advance votes are still being asked from workers from Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) who live in YCDC ground in 10/South Ward, Thaketa Township, Yangon Region on November 7. Advance votes were asked from these workers at 10/South Ward Sub-Commission Office since 8 a.m. and the same act was done at the same place on November 6, too. There were nearly 40 YCDC workers who had to advance-vote on November 6 and nearly 70 workers on November 7, according to 10/South Ward Sub-Commission Office. YCDC administrator and a captain officer from YCDC included while asking for advance vote on November 6, and the people in YCDC uniforms included on November 7. “Commission said that advance voter amount is no more than 100. But as far as we saw, they came and voted in groups starting from 8:30 a.m. It is impossible to say that the amount is fewer than 100. Total advance voters on yesterday and today might be even 300. And how can we know these people would come and vote again tomorrow? We don’t remember them. Moreover, they were not marked with ink as a sign of finish-voting. So how can we do?” said a responsible person from NLD Electoral Office in 10/South Ward who monitored the incident. 10/South Ward Sub-Commission Office said that these workers were asked to vote in advance since they will be on duty on Election Day, November 8. “We come and advance-vote today as we are assigned to clean the park tomorrow. A group of us also voted in advance yesterday,” said a YCDC worker, who came and voted in advance. When YCDC was contacted concerning the case, it replied that only some assigned workers on Election Day are asked to vote in advance, but the number of advance-voters from YCDC was to many. YCDC workers said that they were not pressured to vote for a certain political party. However, since the in-uniform people were in the commission office, it is worrying that true desire of voters might become wrong, said a person who watched the spot. A Deputy Warden goes along with an advance-voter prisoner into voting booth and records with a camera in Kawthaung Prison During collecting advance votes from prisoners in 9-mile Prison, Kawthaung Town, Taninthayi Region, a Deputy-Warden from Myanmar Correctional Department went into the voting booth and recorded with a camera by saying to be the instruction from upper level, said Kawthaung Township Party’s candidate for No (1) Constituency of Regional Parliament, and polling station representatives. While four prisoners in 9-Mile Prison, who are from Padauk Shwe War Ward, voting in advance, a Deputy-Warden from Myanmar Correctional Department entered the voting booth for four times and recorded with camera. When electoral representative of NLD said that it is forbidden to enter the voting booth by law, a warden replied that that was done to make a record in accordance with the instruction. “We went and took advance votes for four prisoners from Padauk Shwe War Ward. It is said that he entered the voting booth and took photos of all four of them voting by saying to be following an instruction. The one who entered and took photos was a Deputy Warden, and that claimed was the Warden. Head of Ward Sub-Commission and Secretary, one from USDP, three from NLD and three from observatory group went there. Phones and cameras had to be left behind,” said Kyaw Thet Naing, Kawthaung Township NLD’s candidate for No (1) Constituency of Regional Parliament. When the case was reported to Township Election Commission, they said that no one is allowed to enter voting booth and take photo, and the case will be reported to Myanmar Correctional Department immediately by phone. Voter lists for those who are out of constituency area including prisoners in 9-Mile Prison reached Kawthaung Township Election Sub-Commission since October 3 and 2718 advance votes were received with 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, and Form 13 till November 5. A security policeman from Hpa-an Town Prime Minister’s house enters voting booth and stamps for another policeman When advance-voting in Hpa-an Town, Kayin State, a security police security personnal from Hpa-an Town Prime Minister’s house entered the voting booth and stamped the ballot of another policeman, and so official oppose followed. Advance voting has being done in ward administration offices of No (4) ward, Hpa-an Town, and on November 6, Htun Htun Oo, a policeman, held the stamp after voting his own and stamped on the ballot of another policeman, Hla Moe. Thus, Zaw Min Oo (a.k.a) Zaw Ye Htet, Candidate for Bamar National Affairs Minister, New Society Democratic Party, who had been watching in the polling station, objected. “We have been observing. Policeman Htun Htun Oo, ballot number 462/ Bamar National voting list number 1006, voted. After that, he held the stamp and said ‘Here is the lion, here is USDP’ and stamped on policeman Hla Moe’s ballot. The teacher who saw the scene said them they couldn’t do so, and notified the commission. I oppose officially as a candidate only after the investigation,” said candidate Zaw Min Oo (a.ka.) Zaw Ye Htet. Ward administrator and candidates checked and regarded the vote of policeman Hla Moe as a rejected one. The two policemen Htun Htun Oo and Hla Moe are security policemen from State Prime Minister’s House. Since Aye Naing, the street administrator of No (1) ward office Hpa-an Town, appealed the advance voters to vote by holding the election campaign poster of National Development Party’s state candidate Myint Aung, the respective people from ward and village sub-commission had to forbid him. In addition, USDP members who have no relation with Ward Commission Office, and polling station, rounded up the villagers for advance-voting, and so untruthfulness in advance voting has been occurring, said Zaw Min Oo (or) Zaw Ye Htet. NLD complained no secrecy for advance voting in Myaungmya The NLD has complained that people have to cast the advance vote in front of the commission authorities without secrecy on November 6 when the advance ballots were being collected in Kwellwe Village in Myaungmya Township where the union minister Tint Hsan lives. During collecting the advance votes, although the polling station agents were allowed to check the event, the voters had to imprint the ballots in front of the authorities without secrecy in Kwellwe Village. There were 65 advance ballots on that day. That’s why the NLD complained about the case to the commission. Dr. Soe Moe Thu, the candidate for Lower House seat of Myaungmya representing NLD, said: “I was reported that the authorities did not allow imprinting the advance ballots in the room secretly, but in front of them. Therefore I’ve complained about it to the commission immediately. Also, I’ve reported it to the central electoral campaign team of the NLD. Such act impinges the secret voting system. It is not in accord with the law.” Forcing to vote in advance at the administrator’s house in Pathein’s Myinkakwin Village The NLD member Thiha Naing reported to the commission that the administrator of Myinkakwin Village in Pathein Township, Ayeyawady Region Thein Shwe had voters to imprint the advance ballots at his home. And the USDP members are calling the voters. Thiha Naing said, “We did not know that the advance voting was started. We’ve just known that those who were not on the voter lists had to give names on November 6 and 7 to the village administrator’s house. Then, we knew that it was collecting the advance votes without secret voting room at his home. I’ve seen that an old lady was assisted by them stamping for the USDP on the ballot. What is more, we’ve seen the USDP members collected those who were going to cast the advance vote. That’s why we complained that to every branch of the commission.” There are one commission office, two polling stations and 3243 eligible voters in Myinkakwin Village. The administrator gets rid of the NLD members to monitor the advance voting at his home. Aung Myint, the chairperson of the sub-commission of Ayeyawady Region said, “There is no right to place the ballot box at the administrator’s house under the situation of having the commission office. Otherwise, either he or the commission officers will definitely be taken action. “ The administrator of Myinkakwin Village Thein Shwe places the ballot boxes at his home although the village has the commission office. There are over 60 advance ballots currently. The NLD’s candidates have sent complaint letters to the commission offices of Pathein Township and Ayeyawady Region. A lot of problems having in Myaungmya regarding with advance voting before the Election Day Only on November 7 in Myaungmya, according to the NLD, conflicts of advance voting and assigning polling station agents between the commission and the other happened. According to the accumulated data by the NLD, facing difficulties of assigning polling station agents due to that the commission refusing it; collecting advance ballots before the time set to do so; continuing electoral campaigning although the allowed period was over; forcing to remove the boards of the party; collecting the advance ballots which do not have the commission seals; the security numbers in advance ballots boxes were mismatched; and advance-votes were collected on the invalid ballots. “Only two polling station agents were allowed to represent a party and the remaining four agents were refused. It happens in twenty or thirty polling stations out of 300. Although the advance votes had to be collected only on November 6 and 7, some collected on November 5. It is reported that USDP was carrying out the election campaign today in Yekyaw Village. And in villages, Electoral Offices forced to take down the party signboards. We take down every election campaign signboards. But we told that we cannot take down those from party office. Regarding the advance vote, in Kunchangyi Village, commission stamp was not pressed on every book but on five or ten sheets, and collecting for votes without the stamp. This might be rejected, so we are planning to oppose it. The important thing is that advance vote boxes are closed with yellow tapes. Our polling station representative recognized that the middle numbers on it are found to be incorrect. On the first day, they just noted the numbers – didn’t take any photo of it. Then, on the next day, the numbers become, for example, 39 changes into 93, and 18 to 81, our representatives reported so. We haven’t made any report about that as we don’t have a solid proof yet. If it happens again tonight, this might be assumed that the box was opened or changed,” said Wai Lin Aung, Media Communication In-charge of Myaungmya NLD electoral office. Not-resident people included in voter list of Nyaung-hla Village, De-pe’-yin Township, cast advance ballots Many people who are not residents of Nyaung-hla Village in De-pe’-yin Constituency of Shwebo District, Sagaing Region are included in voter list, in addition, they are found to be advance-voting, so the local people are worrying about the untruthfulness in voting. People, who are not the residents of that village but included in the village’s voter list, came and advance-voted on November 4, 6 and 7, so residents are worrying about the untruthfulness in voting. Total number of people, who are able to vote in Nyaung-hla Village, De-pe’-yin Township, is over 2200. “We heard about the news from Nyaung-hla Village since yesterday. Those advance voters’ NRC cards show they are from various towns. Still their names are included in this township’s immigration office. It is the sign of preparation beforehand. As they are on voter list, they have the right to vote. But this might cause untruthfulness in voting. We reported about this to Central Electoral Committee. They are lying by using the law as a pretext,” said Win Myint Aung, Lower House Parliament candidate of NLD from De-pe’-yin Township. In this case, about 50 none-resident people are included in voter list of the village and 11 came for advance voting untill November 7, said the residents. “Those who came and voted are included in the voter list. But I have never seen them before. They are not Nyaung-hla Village resident, not at all. Ward and Village sub-commission and Township commission said that they can vote as they are included in voter list. Their name didn’t include on the first time of voter list. We, residents, are worrying about untruthfulness in voting as noone-resident people came and advance-voted,” said a representative observer of polling station from Nyaung-hla Village, De-pe’-yin Township. De-pe’-yin Township is where Union Minister Win Myint from USDP would compete and it has 115888 eligible voters, according to Township Election Sub-commission. CR ELEVENMYANMAR.COM
