The race is on today as the Progressive Labour Party and the One Bermuda Alliance do battle in the island's first by-elections since December 2016.

In Paget East, Scott Pearman of the OBA takes on Curtis Richardson of the PLP.

In Warwick North East, Justin Mathias of the OBA and Curtis Dickinson of the PLP are vying for the seat.

This morning, candidates in both constituencies were in place at the polling stations to greet voters who braved rainy and cloudy weather.

Residents have from 8am to 8pm to cast their vote at the Bermuda College Student Centre in Paget, and Bright Temple African Methodist Episcopal Church Hall in Warwick.
