FIJIANS who have yet to register for the 2014 Elections will be able to do so at any of the five permanent registration centres in Nausori, Lautoka, Rakiraki and Labasa.

Acting permanent secretary responsible for elections Mohammed Saneem made the comment yesterday and also encouraged young Fijians who would be eligible to vote to take advantage of the facilities.

"Any Fijian who turns 18 before the election writs are issued will be eligible to register and they can do so by visiting one of the registration centres around the country," Mr Saneem said.

He also reminded those wishing to register that they would need to provide valid forms of identification to verify their identities.

Valid forms of identification include birth certificate, Fijian passport, driving licence, FNPF card, employment card with photo ID or social welfare card.

Mr Saneem added Fijians who were already registered could visit one of the centres to check that their registration details were correct or to replace a lost voter card.
