(Barbados Today) Police officers and other election day workers are today casting their ballots ahead of the January 19 poll.
From as early as 7 a.m., polling stations across the island’s 30 constituencies were opened to facilitate the process.
At the Bethany Evangelical Church, Eagle Hall, in St Michael West, Presiding Officer Linda Phillips told Barbados TODAY the process has been going smoothly.
“This morning there was quick movement, a lot of people coming in, but as we progress it has slowed considerably. So, we are just basically waiting.”
COVID-19 protocols are in full effect at the polling stations. Phillips said voters fully complied with the requirements.
Polling stations will close at 5 p.m.
