THE Fijian Elections Office has announced that voter registration will close on August 4.

This is also the date the Elections Office anticipates President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau to issue the Writ of Election.

Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem said no one would be registered after the issuance of the Writ.

"We anticipate the writ to be issued on August 4 and this means that voter registration closes the same day," Mr Saneem said.

"No person will be registered after the writ is issued and, therefore, my advice to any person who remains not registered but is eligible to do so is to register now before it's too late."

Mr Saneem also revealed that as of June 30, approximately 570,000 people have registered to vote.
