First-time voters, Amit Anesh Kumar and Artika Archana Devi were at Cuvu polling station in Nadroga to cast their votes.

The pair who were once students at Cuvu College a few years ago are now continuing with their tertiary studies.

Mr Kumar 20 is studying Bachelor of Engineering at the University of the South Pacific.

He said, “We are hoping for a better future so each vote counts.”

“I was very excited and that is why I have come a bit early to vote so that I can do other things in the day.

Ms Devi, 19, is a first-year student studying Bachelor in Public Health at the Fiji National University.

She said, “This is history. It makes me proud to see that my vote is counted and my opinion is heard. It’s good to vote.”

“After turning 18 I have finally managed to vote this time around. I grew up watching my parents and the elders in my community make their call. I used to wonder and who they voted for.”

Filimona Raisokula, 21 of Naveivatuloa,  Namosi was also at Cuvu to vote.

Ms Raisokula is eight months pregnant and was accompanied by her mother and niece.

She said, “It is important to make my vote count as it is critical that our say will form a democratic government of our nation that will lead us into another four years.”
