Tensions are normally high in Odododiodoo ahead of elections and observers flag it as a volatile constituency.

Reports of violence have been noted since the start of 2020.

In January, the Member of Parliament for Odododiodoo, Nii Lante Vanderpuye, claimed he was assaulted by National Security personnel.

This led to a clash between NPP supporters and NDC supporters in front of the Jamestown District Police Headquarters.
