A woman casts her vote into a portable ballot box during the parliamentary elections near her house in the village of Slobodschina, about 30 km (19 miles) northeast of Minsk, September 23, 2012. Belarus voted on Sunday in a parliamentary election which was likely to reinforce hardline President Alexander Lukashenko's grip on the small former-Soviet country despite a boycott call from the dispirited opposition.
