By Aaron Humes: Traditionally, the press is identifiable by t-shirts and specially made identification cards on Election Day while covering activities at the polls. 

Commissioner of Police Chester Williams said on Tuesday that would be sufficient for the Police’s purposes on the day, to ensure they know who is who. 

The press must be present to document what is going on, especially as a “check-and-balance” against illegal activity, the Commissioner noted. 

All others participating in the electoral process will also be as well-known to Police and be allowed to go as they please, from returning, presiding and election clerks, to party scrutineers and candidates. 

As for motorcades on Election Night, the Commissioner noted that it would be as difficult to contain as it was on Nomination Day – it is not against the law. But political parties must be responsible, he added, saying that Police will monitor to ensure there is no gathering along the street side – beside which it would be against the law on that particular night anyway. Watch parties will have to be at home with immediate family or by oneself.
