Director of Elections Glasspole Brown says the Electoral Office has enough reserve workers to manage any shortfall from persons who may have changed their minds about manning the polls for tomorrow’s general election.
There’ve been reports that some election day workers have opted out.
However, Mr. Brown says this is not widespread.
According to Brown, the EOJ has recruited nearly 30-thousand election day workers.
There’ve also hired more than seven thousand workers to manage the sanitization process.
Mr. Brown says they have enough protective gear for workers.
Meanwhile, Mr. Brown says he’s not aware whether any Covid-19 positive persons voted on Monday.
Election day workers and members of the Jamaica Defence Force and police voted three days early.
He says strict protocols will be observed for every elector.
