VOTING in the North Trelawny constituency got off smoothly in 136 polling stations this morning without any problems.
A steady stream of voters were spotted flowing into polling stations across Falmouth which opened promptly at 6:00 am.
Ivanhoe Gordon, the returning officer for North Trelawny, told the Observer that polling got underway without any glitches.
The seat is being contested by attorney at law Patrick Atkinson, who is running on the Peoples National Party ticket, Dennis Meadows of the Jamaica Labour Party and independent candidate Ras Astor Black.
Meadows contested the seat during the 2007 polls but lost to Dr Patrick Harris who decided not to seek re-election after serving for two consecutive terms and was replaced with Atkinson.
