How your votes will be counted

Nasik Swami

ACCORDING to the Fijian Elections Office, votes will be counted on location at the polling station where votes are cast in a detailed and transparent manner.

The presiding officer for the polling station will be in charge of the count which will take place in full view of the election observers, agents from the political parties and the media.

The Elections Office says the agents had the right to request a recount.

And any recounts must be submitted with reason for request.

The Elections Office says once the presiding officer is satisfied the procedures have been complied with, the results from the polling station will be posted and securely delivered to the Supervisor of Election.

And after the results had been delivered, the supervisor will prepare the national results tally, which will record the total number of votes cast for each candidate and the total number of votes for each political party.

The Elections Office says this will happen in the presence of candidates, polling agents, observers and media representatives and the tally will also be displayed to the public as it is progressively updated.
