The Fijian Elections Office (FEO) has ex­tended the nationwide voter registration drive by one more week.

This was confirmed yes­terday by the public rela­tions officer for FEO, Edwin Nand.

“FEO has decided to ex­tend the 2017 nationwide voter registration drive by one more week due to the increased interest we have seen from Fijians,” Mr Nand said.

“The registration was scheduled to end on July first but now it will end on July 8th, 2017.”

He added: “The registra­tion drive has been well re­ceived by voters.

“The voter registration drive which is now in its sixth week has already re­sulted in 152,092 from the four divisions.”

The FEO team is also con­ducting mobile voter regis­tration.

“At the people’s conveni­ence we can be at their of­fice. They can take out a few minutes, do their registra­tion, check their voter de­tails and go back to work,” Mr Nand said.

“We also have teams which cater for voters with dis­abilities.

“If you can’t leave your home or can’t attend one of the registration centres, we will make the effort to go to your house, to ensure that you are registered.”
