Voter Services Centres Re-open
October 11

The Fijian Elections Office [FEO] will resume all Voter Services Centres operations around the country from 11October, 2018 until the day before of the 2018 General Election.

With polling to take place on 14 November, 2018, the FEO will ensure that voters are able to obtain their VoterCards right up to the day before Election Day.

Supervisor of Elections, Mr Mohammed Saneem said voters who may have lost their card can still obtain replacement cards.

“While registration of new voters has closed, persons who are already registered can request replacement VoterCards from 11th October, 2018, right up to the day before Election Day,” he said.

Voters also cannot change their details and Polling Venues as these services ceased on 1st October, 2018 when the Writ for the General Election was issued.

Voter Services Centres in Suva, Nausori, Labasa, Savusavu, Rakiraki, Lautoka and Nadi will also remain open.

Voter Services will also be provided at the following locations to make it easier for Fijians to access services:

  • Sigatoka – Provincial Administrator’s Office, Talenavuruvuru;
  • Taveuni – Somosomo Provincial Office, Somosomo Village;
  • Nabouwalu – MSAAF Building, Hospital Road;
  • Seaqaqa – District Office;
  • Tavua – District Office, Nasivi Street;
  • Navua – Provincial Administrator’s Office, Ro Matanitobua House;
  • Ba – District Office, Koronubu House;
  • Keiyasi – District Office, Navatumali Government Station;
  • Korovou – Ground Floor, Waimaro Building;
  • Levuka – Provincial Administrator’s Office;
  • Kadavu – Provincial Administrator’s Office;
  • Vunidawa – Agriculture Building, Vunidawa Government Station;

“Voters need to be able to get their VoterCards replaced right up until Election Day and thus the need to resume services,” said Mr Saneem.

“Voters can also text their Voter Number to 1500 and find out their Polling Venues and Polling Stations so they do not turn up at the wrong venue or station come Election Day.”
