Voter Turnout at the Polls

The last figures for voters’ turnout in the Dangriga bye-elections were issued at five this evening, an hour before the polls closed. That figure stood at fifty-three percent and the six o’clock figure will be known later tonight.  There are a total of six thousand two hundred and five voters in Dangriga, Sarawee and Hope Creek. At four o’clock this afternoon, forty six percent of the electors had cast their ballots; that’s two thousand eight hundred and ninety one voters. That figure inched up to fifty-three percent at five o’clock meaning that three thousand three hundred and ten percent had polled. It is expected that the turnout in the bye-election will be between fifty-five and sixty-five percent.
