<nettime> Belarus


There is little theoretical here, just plain ugly facts.


Belarus Presidential Election Exit Poll Abroad: 

Tsikhanouskaya – 86.88%

Lukashenko – 3.90%

These are the results of the exit polls conducted at the polling stations located outside of the Republic of Belarus for the presidential election 2020 (as of 7:20 am GMT on August 10, 2020): 

  • Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya – 86.88% of the votes 

  • Incumbent President Alexander Lukashenko – 3.90% of the votes. 

  • The third most popular option is “Refused to answer” with 6.52% of votes.

In Washington, D.C. as of 7:20 GMT (+3), 97.58% of respondents voted for Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, and 0,24% voted for Alexander Lukashenka. 

In New York, 96.15% voted for Tsikhanouskaya, and 0.79% for Lukashenka. 

The Exit Poll Abroad is an independent initiative that united Belarusians living in 23 countries, including the U.S. The purpose of the Exit Poll Abroad project is to ensure transparency and fairness of the Belarusian elections in 2020. Projects like this one are outlawed in Belarus because of the legislative restrictions imposed on independent polling. 

For the first time in the 29-year history of independent Belarus the OSCE/ODIHR election observation mission was not monitoring the elections due to the failure of the Belarusian government to send invitations in due manner and on time. 

No independent members or representatives of alternative presidential candidates were registered as members of election commissions counting votes. Thousands of independent local observers were denied access to the polling stations, and dozens of them were detained by the police. 

The Exit Poll Abroad is a unique project which reveals the results of the Belarus Elections transparently and communicates these results to the world. The details of the exit polls methodology are explained in the attachment.

Please let us know if you have any questions, need more information or want to be connected with our spokesperson.

Thank you for your interest in Belarus!
