VOTER registration centres around the nation were full as people attempted to get registered on the last day for registration for the 2014 General Election.

As of July 31, 575,957 voters had registered.

Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem was hopeful that by end of yesterday, they would have had at least 600,000 registered voters.

"We are very encouraged by the large number of people that turned up at the voter registration centres over the weekend. The number of new registrations and corrections made to voter details are indications that our voter awareness is successful and people are aware of the need to register if they wish to vote in the General Election and that you can only vote at a polling station assigned to you," he stated.

"If you are still unsure of where you are to vote on the 17th September, you can also send a free SMS to 545 with your voter ID number to find out your polling venue.

"If your venue is incorrect you can visit a voter information centre or call 545 to find out where our centres are located."

By division, 25,177 registered to vote in the Eastern Division, 220,267 in the West, 238,895 voters in the Central, the North had 86,610 while 5008 voters who are abroad had registered.
