PEOPLE in the Northern Division have been urged to know their polling venues and understand how to vote at next month's general election.

With 20 days to go before the September 17 general election, the Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu has urged voters to fully understand their roles as voters.

"This year the nation has made great stride towards the return to parliamentary democracy," Mr Bolalevu said.

On September 6 last year, his Excellency the President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, following a national consultation formally gave his assent to the 2013 Constitution, the Supreme Law that will lead us to election day on September 17.

"My advice to people of the North, who have registered for election, is to cast your vote on this day."

He reminded the people that each individual's vote would be counted for Fiji's future.

Kamlesh Kumar, 42, of Naduna in Labasa said the election would determine where Fiji stood and how the nation would progress.

"We need to move forward and this election is one that everyone is excited about," Mr Kumar said.
