Election officers should not be barring media reporting at polling stations

To all media (and especially to younger journos) covering the elections, you have the right to film and report at polling stations.

OTSSSS

To all media (and especially to younger journos) covering the elections, you have the right to film and report at polling stations. It is an integral part of transparency in a democracy.

The constitution is supreme!

Polling officials should NOT be stopping anyone from filming or reporting on the elections. We do NOT need permission to ensure that we do our part to keep OUR democracy intact through accurate reporting.

Any polling official or returning officer who demands that we seek permission should be asked why he/she is attempting to stop an essential part of the democracy from doing its job.

Any threats of arrest should also be exposed.
