Voting slow with over seven hours to go

 
It was an early start and a quiet morning for a couple of polling stations in Omagh town.
 
The midday voting count, five hours after the polls opened, showed just over ten per-cent of eligible voters had exercised their vote.
 
From the five boxes in The Station Centre, 426 people had cast their vote by 12pm out of an eligible 3,665 (11.6 per-cent).
 
It was a similar story in the Holy Family PS, were 317 people out of 2,997 (10.5 per-cent) had voted after five hours.
 
With the polls open until 10pm tonight, there is still time for the tradition post Coronation Street rush to the polls.
