Election Day Update

The contentious end to the campaign has continued on election day, with the Tymoshenko and Yanukovych camps trading accusations about efforts commit fraud (more here).  In addition, a controversy about voting at home using the mobile ballot box has intensified.  

At the moment, the CEC is posting updated turnout figures, based on 3:00 p.m. reporting from the polling sites.  Turnout was 16.2% at 11:00 a.m. and is reported to be 39.47 at 3:00 p.m. (although it is not quite yet 3:00 here.  The value may be based on partial results and will be updated as more electoral commissions report in).

I will continue to post updates as Internet access allows.  My apartment's cable and Internet inexplicably went out 36 hours ago (supposedly the whole building is out).  The provider claims to be working on the problem, but I have seen no evidence yet.
