Most opposition parties decided to contest the election but not all candidates were registered. The Conservative Christian Party and the Belarusian Social-Democratic Assembly decided to boycott the election.
On November 13, during the preliminary voting, an observer in Brest published a video claiming ballot stuffing. Lidia Yermoshina, chief of the Central Election Commission of Belarus, denied the fraud and argued that the observer's accreditation should be withdrawn for he wasn't allowed to film the video. On November 15, his accreditation was withdrawn by the local electoral commission. His another objection about the number of preliminary votes was accepted.
Students from some universities claimed that they were forced to participate in preliminary voting, or encouraged to do so by allowing being absent from classes on Saturday (working day postponed from November 8) and Monday. The universities denied these rumors. On November 15, the Belarusian State Economic University students protested openly near the campus for similar reasons, citing the recently published video with one of their instructors (curators) openly demanding to vote during the preliminary round.
