Voters in the St. George North constituency are reminded that the use of all communication devices, such as smart phones, smart watches and smart pens, is prohibited in the polling station on polling day, Wednesday, November 11.
According to the Supervisor of Elections, Angela Taylor, communication devices and all other personal effects must be left at the desk before proceeding to the polling booth.
Mrs. Taylor stated that voters must retrieve their personal effects on the way out, after they have marked their ballot and completed voting.
She also reminded voters that on the day of the by-election, the polling booth would be positioned so each voter enters with his or her back to the Presiding Officer.
She explained that this would allow the Presiding Officer to see that voters are not using any concealed electronic communication devices.
Mrs. Taylor gave the assurance that privacy and the secrecy of the vote would be maintained.
