Both major parties, the Progressive Liberal Party and the Free National Movement, held rallies in Grand Bahama last night.

Although the polls officially opened at 8:00 am, the lines were formed as early as 7:00 am at some polling stations.

There are five seats being contested in Grand Bahama, of the total 39 seats to make up the House of Assembly.
