Some Gambians are raising concerns over their marbles not entering the drums of their candidates. According to these voters, the size of the marbles do not match the holes of the drums.
Report reaching The Fatu Network confirms that indeed some marbles are too big and cannot be put through the opening on the ballot drums, this has upset many voters.
An IEC official confirmed the concerns are genuine and has said they will change any ballot/ token/ marble that cannot pass through the hole of the drums.
Gambia has a unique way of voting for their president – instead of ballot papers, voters use marbles. It is uniquely the only country in the world which uses marbles to cast their ballots rather than paper.
In the 2012 election there were only two invalid votes when people placed their marbles on the top of the voting drum
