Long rows were observed in the Great Santo Domingo, in Higüey, in Nagua, and in Santiago, among other locations.
At 7:00 o’clock in the morning the president of the Central Electoral Board, Julio César Castaños Guzmán, ordered the formal start of the voting process and clarified to the electors that if in some schools they have problems to start the process, they do not despair and have a little patience.
“It could happen that there was a delay in the polling stations,” said the president of the Board.
