Drawing the polling station line


Share post:

Since Prime Minister Freundel Stuart rang the election bell, the battle lines have been drawn and barbs are being flung left, right and centre by the political candidates.

On May 11, other lines were drawn as the May 24 polling day approaches.

A NATION team was on hand in Rock Dundo, St Michael, as Island Constable Anthony Barnes and Philip Hinkson painted the white lines in the roads prohibiting voters from gathering within 100 yards of Christ The King Anglican Church, a polling station, during voting hours.

In addition the use of loud speakers, bunting, bands of music, flags, party badges, or any such paraphernalia as political propaganda, is forbidden.

Sergeant Chris Griffith said that location was one of nine they had been to in St Michael North and St Michael North East and they had others to get done. (GBM)
