The polling stations include GloryLand Hotel 1 A and B and GloryLand 2 A and B.

Mr E.K Adu, the Presiding Officer, told the Ghana News Agency that due to the confusion, electoral officers at the polling station decided to assist the voters to join the right queues.

“The place is small and yet, it is supposed to accommodate five polling stations,” he added.

He said all the verification machines were working without hitches.

Mrs Sally Amaki Darko Attopee, the NDC Parliamentary candidate, who also voted at the GloryLand polling station, was satisfied with the polls so far.

Meanwhile,voting at three other polling stations in the constituency commenced 45 minutes late due to filling of the statement of polls.

At the Otaten Electoral Area, where the Hindu Monastery 1; Odorkor A and B and Hindu Monastery 2 fell, voting started at 7:45am.

Ms Sharon Ohenewaa, the Presiding Officer for Hindu Monastery 2; Odorkor told the GNA that the electoral materials came on time and everything was in order.

He said the delay was due to the filling of the statement, which were supposed to be collected before the commencement of polls.

There were long queues at all the polling stations GNA visited with security personnel present to maintain peace and order and protect lives and property.

A couple of voters could not find their names in the voter register, because they were excluded from the main register either they did multiple registration or used National health insurance card in registering without cross-checking.

The constituency has seven Electoral Areas with over 180 polling stations ranging from part of Awoshie, Kwashieman, Sakaman, Odorkor and West and East Darkuma.

GNA also noticed that CODEO and NCCE were at the polling station to observe the polls.
