MEMBERS of the public turned up in great numbers at the Elections Office open day in Labasa to register themselves as polling officials in the upcoming election.

People braved the rain in Labasa yesterday to attend the registration.

For most of them, it was a good chance to look for an employment opportunity.

Kia islander Francis Masiniqa said she was part of the open day yesterday to get an employment opportunity.

"I know the election is just for one day but this is a big opportunity for me as an unemployed youth and the pay is not bad," she said.

"I am looking forward to the awareness on our roles as I am eager to be a polling official come the next election."

Seaqaqa resident Preetika Devi said she was proud to be part of the election.

"It is true that we are all here for the money but I am proud to give a helping hand during the next election and assist the people of Fiji choose their next government," Ms Devi said.

"This is a historic moment for youths like me to be involved in the country's political voting process."

Ms Devi's friend Sherin Shahisha shared her friend's sentiment saying she wanted to be part of the election process.

"I would also like to make money as an unemployed youth for my family back in Naduna," she said.
