The Electoral Office of Jamaica (EOJ) says 26,498 Election Day workers along with 12,610 police and military personnel are down to vote three days before the rest of the electorate.

The EOJ says voting will take place at 195 polling locations that will be established in schools, churches, police stations, military bases and court houses across the island.
