A total of 2034 students have so far chosen to register with the Fijian Elections Office [FEO] in the first week of the 2016 Student Voter Registration Drive.

This is an increase from last year’s drive which recorded 1331 new registrations after week one.

“This large increase in student registrations is an indication of the growing level of interest that younger generations in Fiji have in the electoral process,” said Mohammed Saneem, Supervisor of Elections.

FEO teams will visit high schools, special needs schools and technical colleges around Fiji with the aim to provide convenient voter services to students over the age of 18.

“FEO understands that many students, particularly in rural schools, may find it difficult to travel to our offices to register so we brought the services directly to them,” Mr. Saneem said.

FEO has visited 55 schools so far including Koro High School.

The School Voter Registration Drive began on Monday 6 June 2016 and ends on Friday 1 July 2016.
