BALLOT boxes, ballot papers, voter information guide including the National Candidates List left for Eastern Fiji yesterday in five government vessels so pre-poll could start in the Lau Group.

According to the Fijian Elections Office, these teams were deployed to these islands because of the remoteness of most of the communities there.

On board the ships are about 155 people employed as pre-poll presiding officers, assistant presiding officers and polling day workers whose jobs are to ensure that all registered to vote in Eastern Fiji can do so.

Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem told the election officials to ensure every registered voter was met with the same high standard of professionalism, no matter where or when they vote.
