Polling stations braced for the evening rush

Thu, 29 Sep 2011

Polling stations across the Island are expecting a rush of voters coming through the doors.

People have until 8pm to choose who they think should represent their constituencies in the House of Keys for the next five years.

Every constituency is contested this time round and there'll be at least tow new MHKs when members are sworn in on 4th October.

Nominations will be taken for the Island's new Chief Minister on that date too.

More than 8,000 new voters have registered since the 2006 elections.

However, this teller in Douglas east says the turn out there hasn't been great.[play media file below]

He told us what he believes people will look for in their candidates.[play media file below]

A phone line has been set up for anyone who needs information or help with voting matters.

It's open until 8pm when the polls close.

The number is 685754
