Villagers of Vuinaqalutu didn’t have to worry about travelling for kilometres to cast their votes as the Fijian Elections Office arrived at their village yesterday.

The young and the old alike lined up to make their votes count.

The village headman, Anare Lagilagi, said he was happy that fellow villagers set aside family chores to vote.

“I’m so happy that the 94 who’d registered to vote are all here to vote” Mr Lagilagi said.

“The oldest voter is 81 years old and the youngest is 18 and they are all here today,” he said.

Sixty-year-old, Losalini Tabakei said she had to leave behind her house chores to cast her vote.

“I was a bit scared when going inside the hall to vote but the officers were very helpful. I am very happy that I have voted and I’m looking forward to the government I’ve voted for,” she said.

The same sentiment was  shared by 31-year-old Osea Lesinivalu, He said he left aside plantation work just so he could vote.

“I can’t wait to see the results and see the newly- elected government get into power” he said.
