Live Blog: Trinidad and Tobago Election Day 2020

Today, Trinidad and Tobago heads to the polls. 

There are 146 candidates from 19 political parties and four independent candidates contesting today's election.

According to the Elections and Boundaries Commission (EBC) more than 1.1 million people are eligible to vote in this year's election.

It remains to be seen what voter turnout will be, given the concerns about the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) which has seen a recent rise in numbers on our shores. 

The EBC has been working closely with the Ministry of Health to implement safety guidelines for the voting process today.
