He says Fijians living overseas as well as those who will not be able to go to their Polling Station on Election Day by virtue of being sick or due to religious beliefs or work commitments, need to apply for postal voting.

He adds these also include Fijians working in essential services such as the health and tourism sector as well as members of the media.
