Huge turnout at polling stations

THERE has been a huge turnout of voters at most of the country’s polling stations as Zimbabweans cast their votes in the harmonised elections.

Apart from Harare, where they were some hiccups caused by prior court challenges that delayed the printing of ballot papers, the situation has been smooth sailing.

The country has witnessed a massive huge turnout of voters mostly in rural areas with the process going on smoothly despite some areas having received voting materials a bit late although the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission extending time for such.

Mrs Tarisai Dongo of Glenview 1 also admitted that the voting environment was quiet and peaceful pointing to a credible free and fair election.

She said although they failed to get ballot papers on time at their station, they will patiently wait so that they exercise their right to vote.

“We are still waiting for ballot papers. No matter what time we receive our ballot papers, we are definite that today we will vote,” she said.
