ELECTIONS BARBADOS – High voter turnout in the north

As has been the trend throughout the country, residents have been turning out in their numbers in the north of the island  to cast their ballot.

Even before the scheduled 6 a.m. opening of the polls, there were long lines at the St Lucy Primary, Salvation Army, Checker Hall and Colderidge and Parry schools.

The returning officer at the Alexandra School told Barbados TODAY that the day’s proceedings have been smooth thus far.

Among early voters was former DLP candidate for St James North Austin Husbands.

In the constituency of St Peter, BLP candidate Colin Jordan is us against the DLP’s Dave Cumberbatch and Apostle Lynroy Scantlebury of the Barbados Integrity Movement.

In St Lucy it’s a five man race between BLP’s Peter Phillips, the incumbent Denis Kellman of the Democratic Labour Party, Solutions Barbados’ John Carter, UPP’s Wayne Griffith and Richard Roach of the Barbados Integrity Movement.
