Guyanese are currently in the process of voting in what is being deemed a “historic” 2016 Local Government Elections which could re-shape the local democratic landscape of the political system.
President David Granger was among some of the first eligible voters to cast his vote at the Enterprise Primary School this morning.
General Secretary Clement Rohee voted at 6:30am at the Eccles Elementary school.
Most of the persons who have voted so far have expressed that the process went smooth and they were given the necessary guidance from the officials present.
So far the voter turnout for these local polls appear low compared to that of the recently held 2015 General and Regional Elections.
Most of the polls opened on time with a few exceptions noted in Region 4, 3, 5 and 6.
Guyanese are voting in some 71 Local Authority areas including 62 Neighbour Democratic Council.
