Some of the officials who spoke to Vanguard said they arrived the unit by 8 am but up till 9.30am, voting was yet to commence due to card reader issue while some voters who could no longer endure the waiting left.

Voters were also asked to go and cross-check their names on the board and wash their hands before they vote.

In Polling unit 004, voting commenced at 8.45am but had low turnout.
