THERE are 664 registered voters in Australia for the September general election.

And with the Fijian Elections Office to conduct its second round of voter registration in Australia starting June 21 and ending June 26, there is hope that those eligible will make most of the opportunity.

Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem said in a statement the Fijian Elections Office had been working closely with the Fiji High Commission in Canberra and also with Fijians in Australia to undertake the exercise.

He said the teams would also be able to replace lost electronic voter registration (EVR) cards, make changes to the details such as addresses and also do new registrations. "We intend to register those Fijians who missed out on the Fijian Elections Office's last registration drive in February," he said.

"Any person who intends to register can do so by coming to the nearest registration centre and producing a valid Fijian passport."

According to the Elections Office, Fiji citizens in Australia who intend to register to vote in the 2014 general election can do so from June 21.
