Director of Elections Glasspole Brown told Radio Jamaica News that 2.1 million ballots have been printed and he is satisfied with the other preparations ahead Thursday's voting by special groups, including members of the security forces and election day workers. 
 
"We are in the final stage of sending all the supplies across the island. We should be in the different locations by tomorrow afternoon. Well, our preparations have been going to plan and we are quite happy in terms of where we are at today's date," he said, adding that things should go "fairly smoothly" on Thursday. 
 
More than 40,000 people are eligible to vote on Thursday.
 
Those special groups will vote ahead of the general population who will cast their ballots on Monday, February 26. 
 
Mr. Brown said preparations are also in high gear for Monday.
 
"We should finalise all our preparation over the weekend in terms of setting up our polling stations, doing our final briefing with our workers. That should take place Saturday and Sunday. So we're looking forward to Monday."
