Fern Narcis-Scope, Chief Election Officer at the Elections and Boundaries Commission (EBC) is confident that everything is in place for persons to vote tomorrow.
Narcis-Scope says, “We’re ready and every effort has been made to ensure each elector is able to cast their vote.” Narcis-Scope reminded the electorate that persons who may not have received their poll card or with expired ID cards can still vote, once their name is on the Revised List of Electors.
In its preparations for Monday’s elections, the EBC has partnered with the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM), the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) and the Disaster Management Units (DMUs) of the Regional Corporations. Narcis-Scope said this was the beginning of what she considers to be a working partnership with these agencies going forward. The EBC will be monitoring Monday’s weather conditions and will receive regular updates from the TTMS. With the assistance of the ODPM and the DMUs, sandbags have also been pre-positioned in flood prone areas in the event of an emergency during Monday’s elections.
