Voter Registration 2018 begins
June 18, 2015 7:01 pm
The Fijian Elections Office [FEO] has begun rolling out the first phase of voter registration for the 2018 general election.
Mohammed Saneem, Supervisor of Elections says the focus remains on registering young Fijians who just turned 18 as well as giving the opportunity to any Fijian who did not register before.
Election office teams will begin travelling from this month with a more comprehensive exercise due in July.
Saneem says their teams will also be issuing replacement “Election Voter Registration (EVR)” cards as well as allowing Fijians to update their details such as change of address. Other notifications will also be accepted such as death of any registered voter.
Any person who is a Fiji citizen and has reached the age of 18 is entitled to register to vote.
