Ukraine: Vote count may be disrupted
An activist group claims to have destroyed the election commission’s computer system with a virus.
KIEV Ukraine - Just fewer than 40 percent of Ukrainians have cast their ballot in the country's presidential poll.
Whoever is elected on Sunday will hold office for the next five years.
The elected president will also have the very difficult task of trying to keep a divided country together.
According to reports, the one major concern during the election was security.
So far, no major glitches have occurred despite the fact that most of the population in the east of Ukraine were not voting.
They believe the elections are illegal and want to join with Russia.
Two hours away from voting polls closing down, officials are concerned whether or not the vote count process will be disrupted.
An activist group claimed to have destroyed the Central Election Commission's computer system with a virus that deletes voter counting.
Ukraine's Interim Interior Minister Armenian Arsen Avakov says the virus might force a manual recount.
Previously, results were going to be announced on Monday afternoon.
