The Fijian Elections Office [FEO] has decided to extend the 2017 Nationwide Voter Registration Drive for one more week due to the positive interest shown by members of the public.

The Voter Registration Drive which is well into its sixth week, has resulted in 152,092 voters accessing Voter Services in all four [4] divisions around the country.

In these last remaining days we have seen more interest from voters than we had in previous weeks of registration.

The Registration Drive has been well received by voters and it is befitting to extend the Drive for an additional week to ensure all eligible Fijian citizens can take advantage of the services we are offering to voters. The interest shown by the public is notable and we anticipate more voters to access the Voter Services during the remaining week.

We have teams on standby to facilitate the provision of Mobile Voter Registration for business houses and persons with disabilities, who are not able to visit any of our registration booths, to make arrangements with us.

We want to also allow this opportunity to anyone who has not updated their details to do so before the Recruitment Drive for Election Officials commences. So far, the plans are that we will not have any registration teams at the recruitment centres.

The Nationwide Voter Registration Drive was to have ended on July 1, 2017 but will now end on July 8, 2017.
