TODAY IS V-DAY in Trinidad and Tobago.

V for voting which some 1 099 205 electors are eligible to do. And V for victory which only one side will celebrate later tonight. The magic number is 21, there being 41 seats to in this electoral contest.

Voting starts at 6 a.m. sharp and ends at 6 p.m. All persons who are in the line by 6 p.m. will be able to cast their ballot. There are 1 547 polling divisions in the country. Special voting was supposed to close on Friday, but due to problems with this process, the Elections and Boundaries Commission (EBC) extended the time to yesterday.

There are three main contenders in this race – the ruling People’s Partnership (contesting as comprising the United National Congress, the Congress of the People and the National Joint Action Committee); the Opposition People’s National Movement (PNM) and the Independent Liberal Party (ILP).

Over the last 12 weeks, these three parties have been working the ground in all 41 constituencies, holding public meetings, conversations with the people, rallies and motorcades. (RT)
