Large numbers of voters trooped out on Saturday in Ondo State to cast their votes for their desired candidates in the governorship elections holding across the state.
In many parts of the state, voters complied with the COVID-19 protocols by wearing face masks and keeping social distancing at the polling centres.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials were punctual for accreditation and security was beefed up in all the polling units.
There was no report of card readers’ failure at the units visited by journalists as voters also conducted themselves in an orderly manner.
An octogenarian voter at unit 16, ward 2, New Garage area of the state, Mr. Samuel Crown, said the election process was smooth and the electoral officers and security agencies were performing their duties accordingly.
“I am here to exercise my franchise, I think the process is okay as INEC officials and securities conducted themselves well,” he said.
