WHILE the fourth phase of voter registration has begun in some areas around the country, figures from the Fijian Elections Office show 554,566 voters have been registered so far.
Elections supervisor Mohammed Saneem said 86,277 people registered in the Northern, 23,0612 in the Central, 211873 in the Western and 24,180 in the Eastern divisions.
Mr Saneem confirmed 1624 Fijians living overseas also registered.
He said with their estimates in 2012, the voter registration started with a projection made from the 2006 census, that there would be about 600,000 to 620,000 Fijians over the age of 18.
"So we are now in a morph up phase, we expect many people who have not yet registered to turn up."
He said the fourth phase of registration would also allow voters to correct their registration details if they had made a mistake while registering.
Meanwhile, registrations are ongoing in the Western, Eastern divisions and in Rotuma.
Voter registrations in Kadavu, Lau, and Lomaiviti will begin next Wednesday.
The Elections Office will send out 10 teams to these areas to register those who want to vote.
