Yerevan Votes: Ink oxidation allegations made as Yerevan polls progress

Problems with stamp ink designed as an additional safeguard against repeated ballot appear to continue during the elections to Yerevan’s Council of Elders as well.

Within several hours after the opening of the ballot on Sunday several claims about the early oxidation of ink supposed to remain in passports of voters for at least 12 hours as a means to exclude their repeated vote have been made at several polling stations.

The opposition Hello Yerevan bloc communicated to media similar alerts that it received from polling stations 7/22 and 7/23. In one of these polling stations special ink had reportedly been mixed with ordinary ink stuff. Opposition Heritage party spokesman Hovsep Khurshudyan also reported that some voters in one of the mentioned polling stations were using pens of different color to tick the ballot-papers. While this is not a violation of the Election Code, the allegation is that such voters could be “guided” by outside influence.
