Trinidad: Voters still in line, as polls close and count begins

6 P.M came and went but the voting continues because there are hundreds of people still lined up at some polling stations.

Shortly before the official close of polls, there were as many as 200 people still waiting in line to get to the voting booth at the Gulf View Community Centre in the marginal constituency of San Fernando West.

From observations by the candidates and people who went to the polling stations today, the turnout was larger than the 2015 general election, when the electorate was 1,082,279, and 67.27 per cent of the electorate came out to vote.

This time around, the electorate grew to 1,143,136.
