YOU VOTE WHERE YOU REGISTER

Eligible Gambians registered at designated Registration Centres across the country. These centres are going to be the polling stations in the Presidential Election. Since it is stipulated that where one registered is where one votes, the same will happen tomorrow.
 
The electorates are required to show up at the places they were issued voters’ cards. If they go to another polling station other than the one they were registered, they will not be able to vote. The simple reason being that their names will not be at that particular polling station.
