SOCIAL distancing measures due to the Covid-19 pandemic has caused long lines at polling stations across Trinidad and Tobago as voting begin on Monday morning.

AZPNews.com reporter Sue-Ann Wayow was in the marginal constituency of San Fernando West as polls opened at 6 am.

She said there were long lines at the San Fernando West Secondary School, San Fernando Central Secondary School and the ASJA Girls’ College.

But for the most part voting went smoothly.

There were relatively long lines at ASJA Girls’ College as voter complained about being allowed into the polling station one at a time.

But from young and old started voting.
