62 Percent Came Out to Vote In Cayo North By-Election

A total of 4063 voters came out - that's 62% of the 6598 registered voters. That is considered a respectable turnout for a by election, but significantly less than the 2012 general election where 74% came out.

Polling Area #75 in Bullett Tree had 74% turnout with 1,137 persons voting.

Polling area #73 in San Ignacio had only 58%, or 2926 of the 5056 voters coming out.

Again, the 13 ballot boxes have been taken to the Center for Employment Training and counting is expected to start shortly. That's about 300 votes per ballot box, so first results are expected by around 8:30 pm.
