The Electronic Voter Registration (EVR) has been extended by a day and will now end tomorrow, Saturday the 1st of September.

All of the urban Voter Registration Centers (VRCs) will remain open tomorrow during their normal operating hours, with the exception of the VRC in Ovalau which closes today.

Permanent Secretary Responsible for Elections, Mere Vuniwaqa in a statement said the extension will give Fijians, especially those whose work might keep them from registering during the week, an extra day on the weekend to register.

She said they want to ensure that Fijians have every opportunity to register before the intensive period of EVR ends
 
After the 1st of September, registration will close across all centers for at least two-and-a-half months as the Elections office carries out data verification and analysis.
