Majority polling venues registered: FEO

The Fijian Elections Office has confirmed that majority of the polling venues around the country are registered.
Elections Supervisor, Mohammed Saneem, says while more will be revealed later, they’re doing this early to avoid confusion during the 2018 general election.
Saneem is encouraging those eighteen and above to take advantage of the registration drive to get clarifications on where and when they can vote.
“That’s what we have done now so you can know whether you are voting before the elections day as a pre -poll person or are you voting on elections day vote so that’s one improvement in the list. You can also now see where you are supposed to vote so that allows you as I have said the difference between husbands and wives voting in different venue. We allow you to rectify that but if you do not change your venue by the closing of the registration you will still have to go in different venues.”
Those who are married can vote at the same polling station next year compared to the previous election where many voted from separate polling venues.
