Electronic voting ongoing in NUPW elections
A NEW ELECTRONIC form of voting is expected to bring a speedier result from today’s National Union of Public Workers’ elections.
Acting General Secretary Roslyn Smith told the NATION the system will also add to the transparency and accountability of the entire process.
She said voters were slow to the 20 polling stations before noon, but she expected the volume to pick up as people took lunch or finished work. There are also two floating boxes, one in the north and the other in south of the island. About 9 000 public workers are eligible to vote, Smith said. (YB)
