MONROVIA – The early hours of the run-off Presidential election have witnessed a low turnout, particularly in some of the densely populated communities.
FrontPageAfrica observed polling centers such as G.W. Gibson Public School, C. Williams Brumskin Public School, Cathedral Catholic School, Solidarity Elementary School, West Central Mosque, First AGM High School, AB Massaquoi School, and others across Central Monrovia were noticeably empty.
John Kerkula, an observer at Solidarity Elementary School in West Point, mentioned that despite the absence of electoral violence, the turnout is significantly low. He expressed hope that people would come out to vote as the day progressed.
Sarah Dickson, a resident of Front Street, shared her experience after casting her vote at C. Williams Brumskin Public School, stating that the voting process was unlike previous elections.
Madam Dickson urged Liberians, especially females, to come out and vote, emphasizing that their votes are crucial for shaping the future. She expressed concern about the poor turnout but remained optimistic, calling on all well-meaning Liberians to participate in the electoral process.
“The turnout is poor, but I believe that people will come out during the day. I’m calling on every well-meaning Liberian to come out and vote. To my fellow women, come out and vote for your and your children’s future,” she said.
