Fiji’s Elections Office is currently adjudicating the data of close to half-a-million Fijians who registered during the first phase of Electronic Voter Registration (EVR) this year.
At the close of the first phase of sixty-one days, 488,734 Fijians registered at VRCs across the country.
Permanent Secretary for the Electoral Reforms, Mere Vuniwaqa said this exercise will ensure a clean voter list and a clear understanding of the distribution and demographics of registration so far in order to better cater for specific needs during the second phase of registration which is set to open next month.
The “cleaning” process is being carried by close to thirty registration clerks (pictured).
“One of the clerks’ major responsibilities is to examine the voter list to locate entries with similar or identical voter information,” Vuniwaqa said in a statement.
She said such cases usually indicated that an individual had registered more than once.
The Elections Office is currently cross-checking the information collected through the written application forms with the information entered into the electronic database, to ensure that the data (such as the spelling of an individual’s name) has been entered correctly.
Once this exercise has been completed, the Provisional Roll of every Fijian who has so far registered to vote in the 2014 General Election will be made available to the public at District Offices across the country.
The public will then have the opportunity to examine the roll and notify the Elections Office of any errors or anomalies with voters’ information.
