NADORIA villagers of Noco, Rewa will now have a better understanding of how to cast their vote in the September general election.

Village headman Moritekei Baleivuya, who was part of yesterday's district advisory counsellors and village headmen workshop in Nausori, said most villagers had no idea at all of the new voting process.

"I am so glad that the Elections Office came up with this initiative to enlighten us on what the elections are about," Mr Baleivuya said.

"Most villagers have no idea at all what the new process is and this workshop gives a better idea of it."

Elections Office public relations officer Ana Niumataiwalu said the turnout was good and they would move to the West and North next week.
