During the day, all the political leaders cast their ballots. Among them was President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović who caused controversy after she was filmed taking a photo of her ballot. While that is not against the law, the State Election Commission yesterday issued a statement calling on voters not to do that, because it is against general rules of the elections.

In some previous cases, some parties allegedly demanded from their members to take photos of ballots to prove that they had voted for the “right” candidates.

The voting will continue until 7 pm, when first exit poll results will be announced.
