All plans on track: Saneem

August 12

All registered voters have until August 20, to change or correct their polling venues.

This was confirmed by Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem yesterday.

Mr Saneem said it was vital for all voters to take heed of this because one could only vote at the polling stations to which they had been assigned.

“As you are aware, in the 2014 general election, a voter can only vote at a polling station he or she has been assigned to. Each polling station will have up to 500 total of assigned voters.”

To change their polling venues, Mr Saneem advised voters to fill out a form and hand it to their officials.

“After August 20th registered voters cannot make any further changes to their polling stations as we will be finalising and printing the voter rolls to be distributed to the various polling stations,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mr Saneem also confirmed that the Fijian Elections Office was working on all the logistics for the upcoming elections.

He said they were working on a plan that would enable them to reach out to the people on polling day.

“Our planning and preparations are on course and we expect to be on time,” Mr Saneem said.
According to the Fijian Elections Office, the form is available for download from our website and is also available at the nearest Voter Information Centre. There are 18 Voter Information Centres are located around the country.

“If you are still unsure of where you are to vote on the September 17, send a free sms to 545 with your voter ID number to find out your polling venue.

“If your venue is incorrect you can visit a voter information centre or call 545 to find out where our centres are located.

“More information or updates on the road to elections is available on the website,” the statement said.
