Tempers flare in Northern Trelawny

Written by Veneisha Cockhorn

Supervisors in the North Trelawny constituency are reporting that voter turnout could be as high as 80 percent with long lines causing tempers to fray amongst those queuing.

One man had to be escorted from the polling station after he stormed in complaining that time was running out on him. He thought he would miss his chance to vote if he did not cast his ballot by 5 p.m. However, voters cannot be denied the opportunity to vote once they reach the polling station before closing time.

The man was later seen trying to call Dennis Meadows, the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) candidate for the constituency. Mr. Meadows is up against the People’s National Party’s (PNP) E.V. Patrick Harris.
