Speak­ing to Guardian Me­dia out­side of the Jern­ing­ham Gov­ern­ment Pri­ma­ry School where she cast her vote this morn­ing, Mo­hit said the Covid-19 pan­dem­ic has not de­terred those wish­ing to cast their votes.

“We have re­ports com­ing in that all of our (polling) sta­tions are packed this morn­ing, every school, we have num­bers that we can’t count await­ing the vot­ing process,” Mo­hit said

Her own vot­ing process was smooth and in­ci­dent-free and Mo­hit said while there were re­ports of mi­nor is­sues, those were be­ing dealt with as they arose

She said the con­stituents seemed very se­ri­ous about vot­ing this year and she ex­pects the large crowds to con­tin­ue through­out the day
