A second instance of a voter photographing his ballot was reported in the village of Obrsani near Prilep. As in the first case in Skopje, police was called and the voter will be prosecuted.
Photographing the ballots is banned to prevent violation of the secrecy of the vote, and to discourage political parties from pressuring voters to bring back proof of how they voted.
In the village of Rasce near Skopje, the election team reported that the door of Drita elementary school, which serves as a voting station, was damaged. On inspection, it was determined that the election material was not tampered with and voting began as planned, at 7 in the morning, said the Interior Ministry.
