Local NGOs reporting irregularities, not fraud

Georgian Young Lawyer's Association representative Giorgi Chkheidze says his organization is registering widespread irregularities and technical problems, but not overt signs of fraud.

Problems included unstamped boxes, issues with the marking process and inaccurate voter lists.

Meanwhile, representatives of the Labor Party, which has small but significant voter support and has been very confrontational toward the government, say their representatives were kicked out from a polling station in a village near Tbilisi. Authorities have not denied or confirmed the reports.

With 3747 polling stations, seven candidates and more that 20 officially registered observing organizations, we can expect plenty of conflicting reports and numbers throughout the day.
