Polling stations across the island opened at 6 this morning and residents are out in their numbers to cast their ballots.
From 5:30 in the morning, scores of Barbadians lined up outside the Barbados Community College to cast their ballot early.
Meanwhile, this was the scene at 6:15 a.m. at the polling station at the Eunice Gibson Polyclinic in Warrens in St Michael North East.
In the north of the island, there was a long line of voters at the Alexandra School.
The DLP is seeking a third term in office, while the BLP is looking to make history by electing Mia Mottley as the country’s first female Prime Minister.
If Mottley becomes victorious, she will join the likes of the late Dame Eugenia Charles of Dominica, Janet Jagan of Guyana, Portia Simpson Miller in Jamaica and Kamla Persad Bissessar in Trinidad and Tobago in heading a government in the CARICOM region.
