October 26, 2018 4:50 am
A total of seven hundred and sixty-four thousand, eight hundred and fifty ballot papers have been printed by the Fijian Elections Office.
Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem says this is the last batch of ballot papers that will be leaving the printer.
Saneem says the initial time-frame for printing of ballot papers was until November 2nd, however due to the efficiencies within the print facility they managed to complete the task ahead of schedule.
“This includes 20,000 ballot papers for postal voting. 92,400 ballot papers for pre-poll and 652,450 ballot papers for Election Day. As and when ballot papers were ready, we continued to collate and bind them into books and then we transported them to the FEO’s warehouse.”
Saneem says on Sunday, FEO officials will start the packing of material for Pre-poll and this process required all the Ballot Papers to be finally printed and delivered to the Warehouse.
