     At the Christ The King Polling Station of the Lakoo Electoral Area of Dade Kotopon Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, a first-time voter, Mr Isaac Tegbey was waiting behind the closed gate, when GNA visited at 0345.
      Mr Tegbey said he wanted to vote early so that he could go back home to watch television and to avoid entering into arguments.
      Mrs Gifty Afrifah, 37, Hairdresser, who arrived at 0350 hours, said she wanted to vote early so that she could go and open her salon.
