MANCHESTER, Jamaica – Polling at the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) Foster Barracks in Mandeville has been uneventful and slow today with few soldiers turning out to cast their ballots in the local government election.
Presiding Officer, Warrant Officer Class 11, Courtney Wallace, confirmed with OBSERVER ONLINE that after 10:00 am only ten soldiers had already voted.
He added that the voting list that the polling station was provided had 57 names but he knew that some soldiers would not be able to vote because they were either out of the parish or off the island.
