Voting has commenced across wards and units in Gombe township, where 4 governorship candidates are contesting and 253 candidates are vying for the 24 legislative seats at the State House of Assmbly.
Voice of Nigeria observes that compared to the Presidential and National Assembly Elections, movements are not so restricted and there is low voter turnout.
Women turnout lower than the February 23, election, due to an aleged threat to women.
Food vendors are also in business, because some say that people suffered from hunger the last time, when they could not get what to eat.
However, some are of the opinion that there is not enough security to keep the shops and businesses locked.
