Couva South MP: Voters with poll cards being turned away

There are reports that more than a dozen voters with poll cards were turned away from the polls on Monday—in the marginal electoral district of California-Point Lisas—when they went to cast ballots at the Couva East Secondary School. 

Couva South MP, Rudranath Indarsingh, said he got several calls that there have been a number of election discrepancies.

Indarsingh said a woman in possession of a poll card was told that her name was not on the list. He said the woman insisted that they look for her name on the binder until she was allowed to vote.
