People in Wainawaqa Village, in Naitasiri were eagerly waiting for their voting day as people lined up to cast their ballot yesterday at their pre-polling venue. The village’s turaga-ni-koro, Serupepeli Koroitubuna, said although it was a small village with 150 people, the majority were voters. However he did not know the exact number of people voting.

“There majority of young people are voting and we are happy to see them cast their votes,” he said.

“Before the voting, people were made aware of the voting process so it was easy for the people to vote.”

He said the response from the morning was good and his fellow villagers turned up to cast their votes.

He said the people were happy because voting was done right at their doorsteps.

“Those eligible should cast their vote for a better Fiji,” Mr Koroitubuna said.

The people of the village were informed before hand of the pre-polling hence they were prepared for it.

Pre-polling in their venues started off at 8am and ended at 4pm.

Meanwhile the pre-polling in remote areas began on Wednesday, September 3 and would continue until September 15.

The Fijian Elections Office has called on the people to pass on to those doing pre-poll voting to be present at their pre-polling stations on their allocated date to cast their votes.

The Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem, said the onus was on the voters themselves to check and make sure they turned up at the right polling venues and on time to cast their votes.
