Director of Elections Orrette Fisher says all preparations have been finalised for members of the security forces and election day workers to cast their ballots tomorrow.

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 be done at 195 polling locations that are to be established in schools, churches, police stations, military bases and court houses across the island.

Fisher says the names of all persons eligible to vote tomorrow have been extracted from the official voters' list and distributed to the designated polling locations.

He says he expects tomorrow's process to run smoothly.
