Issues voters are facing today
Many voters were not given their photo voting slip, which is usually given prior to the election to enable voters to vote. However, officials are now handing out hand-written slips to voters.
In some places voters faced off with officials who did not allow mobile phones and tablets into voting booths. Citizens said there were no proper announcements regarding this.
