A provisional total of 383,997 people have registered so far across Voter Registration Centres around Fiji after 6911 people registered on Wednesday.
The Central division managed to register 2202 people, Western division registered 3892 while the Northern and Eastern division registered 510 people.
This brings the total number of people registered in the Central division to 152,416, Western division with 141,346, Northern division with 69,062 and the Eastern division with 21,173.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama earlier said it is critical that people participate in order to make their individual voices heard as they work to establish the foundation for the future of the country.
He said no Fijian should think that they do not have anything of value to contribute.
Registrations will end this month but only a few centres will remain open to cater for those who fail to register on time.
