Hundreds of early voters, mostly security personnel, in the various regions, queued at polling stations across the country on Thursday, but could not cast their ballots during the exercise.

The commission decided that persons who could not cast their ballots on that day could now do so at the original constituencies they registered to vote.

The special voting exercise is to afford key individuals and groups who will be playing special roles on election day the opportunity to cast their votes ahead of the main polls on 7 December so they are not disenfranchised.

The first day of the special voting exercise recorded a turnout rate of 72.69% representing 92,231 of 126,875 registered persons, according to provisional figures from the Electoral Commission (EC).
