Many stories are told about how far voters travelled to cast their votes.

And among those stories are those people who travelled long distances to cast their votes.

Excited first-time voter, Vasitai Roko, 22, travelled from Udu Point to cast her vote at Naodamu Housing in Labasa.

She said she was proud to be part of the 2014 General Elections.

“I’m a first-time voter and to have the opportunity to vote in this election is a very exciting moment for me.

“I understood the whole process and I hope that the person I chose wins,” she said.

Another first-time voter Marica Seleivalu said the new voting system was easy to understand and it was very fast.

“I was able to vote freely and I hope my vote counts in this election.”
