SOME village headmen and district advisory councillors in Macuata now have a better understanding of the voting system after attending a voter education awareness training in Labasa yesterday.

And the participants are looking forward to disseminate the information they have gained to members of their community in preparation for the general election in September.

Korowiri and Tovata district councillor Umesh Chand said the training was an eye-opener, adding he now had a better idea of the voting system.

"We had difficulties in understanding the voting system but now, the elections team had explained it thoroughly to us," Mr Chand said.

"I am happy to be part of this training because I will now have the knowledge to educate the rural people in my community."

The election awareness team will be in Savusavu today to educate voters there.
