The Fijian Elections Office (FEO) will now be sending Voter Registration teams to businesshouses with a large number of staff in all major urban locations.

With the Nationwide Voter Registration Drive entering its final 10 days, the FEO wants to ensure that voters who haven’t been able to access services during working hours are not left out.

The FEO’s mobile registration teams will be sent to corporate offices by appointment, to ensure that Fijians who cannot visit Voter Service Centres or Registration booths have the opportunity to access services at their convenience.

“We are calling on employers to exercise their corporate social responsibility and allow their employees to register or update their voter information during this national exercise,” says Supervisor of Elections Mr Mohammed Saneem.

The FEO has mobile registration teams in all four Divisions which can be deployed to business houses or corporate offices at a time convenient to the employer and employees.

Businesshouses can contact Operations Coordinator Litia Sema on 9002290 or to make arrangements for the FEO mobile registration team to visit their premises.

Fijians who will be registering for the first time will need to have a valid Fijian passport; or a birth certificate with a valid photo ID including:

  •  drivers licence,
  •  FNPF/FRCA joint ID card,
  •  student ID card,
  •  social welfare card.

The Nationwide Voter Registration Drive ends on July 1, 2017.
