POLICE have so far received 175 cases of missing electronic voter registration (EVR) cards from the Northern Division this year.

Of the figure, 14 cases were received from a village on Vanua Levu yesterday.

Acting divisional police commander Northern SSP Fulori Rainibogi said unless people took ownership of such cards, the number of missing cards would continue to increase.

"We have continued to receive reports of missing EVR cards," she said.

"These cards are important because they can be used for many purposes. People can't vote without the cards and when you don't vote, your voice is not heard.

"It's only proper for people to take good care of their cards because it serves a purpose."
