It has probably been the best voting experience for one villager.

Forty-eight year old Kuroasi Vesikuru voted for the seventh time at Nawaqadamu village, Nadi, yesterday.

He noticed the difference immediately compared to previous elections.

“During the previous elections we would have party members influencing our vote but now we don’t have them present at the polling station.

“When we leave our houses we would usually know the person we would vote for but when we reach the polling station they would be waiting there influencing our vote,” he said.

Mr Vesikuru said that the proximity of  the polling station was very helpful for him and other voters.

“Travelling is now not an issue to us since the polling venue is just a minute’s walk and before we had to travel to Vunamoli just to cast our votes.

The village headman was thankful to the Fijian Elections Office for making it possible for them to vote.

“I would like to thank the people from the Elections Office for making the polling venue easier for us to go to, and sending over their hard working team,” he said.

Mr Vesikuru was part of the 118 people who were registered to vote at the Nawaqadamu Community Hall.
