Voter education

Salaseini Moceiwai

THE election officers have started educating village headmen and district advisory councillors in Macuata about the voting system as part of its voter education awareness program.

With only 54 days until the much-awaited general election, the officials are making it their businesses to educate every voter in the country about the system.

Office communication co-ordinator Talei Tora said in Labasa yesterday they decided to train such participants because they were the main focal points of information in their respective communities.

"We facilitated the training for these participants because they are the leaders and focal points of information in their communities," Ms Tora said.

"With the knowledge they have gained, they will be able to help us educate the community members on the voting system."
