Voters across the constituency of Eastern St Andrew are leaving polling stations due to what they say are malfunctioning finger print machines.

Both JLP and PNP outdoor agents told The Gleaner that voters were turning back because of the long lines and wait time.

"The people can't take the long wait so some of them a leave because the machines not working," an agent told The Gleaner.

The supervisors at Jamaica College, St. Margaret Anglican Church and the Mountain View New Testament Church say they have reported the issue to the Electoral Office of Jamaica and are working to have the machines up and running as soon as possible
