Access polling venue list, FEO urges people and parties
10 October, 2018, 2:00 pm
MEMBERS of the public, political parties, government agencies and all other stakeholders have been urged to access the polling venue list in order to locate their polling venues.
The call by Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem comes after the Fijian Elections Office (FEO) announced it had published the polling venue list for the 2018 General Election.
The list contains the names of polling venues around the country and addresses of polling venues by divisions.
Mr Saneem said voters should be fully aware of where to vote during polling day to avoid any confusion of appearing at the wrong polling venue.
“Each polling venue may have as many polling stations as required to distribute voters and maintain a maximum of 500 voters per Polling Station,” Mr Saneem said.
He said voters could also access their polling venues by texting their EVR number to 1500 upon, which voters would receive via a text containing details of where to vote.
This is a free service for all mobile networks.
