North East St. Ann ballot box stolen

Written by Devon Evans and Garwin Davis

There have been reports of a missing ballot box in the district of Exchange in the St. Ann North Eastern constituency. According to police, a vehicle was broken into and the empty box removed. The details are still not not clear.

Meanwhile, voters at the Ocho Rios Primary School polling station had to wait an extra hour before the first ballot was cast. It is not clear why the opening of the station was delayed or what will be done to remedy the situation.

The polling station falls in the North East St. Ann constituency where the incumbent, Shahine Robinson of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) is trying to keep the seat from the People’s National Party’s (PNP) Oswest Senior-Smith.

All the other polling stations were opened on time with huge clusters of voters waiting.
