Update: 10:25AM PRE-POLLING for voters in 24 communities and villages in the Western Division began this morning.

A total of 149 rural and inland venues from Rakiraki to Sigatoka - and on outlying islands - have been identified and will be in operation on different days until September 15.

In the interior of Ba, voters were slow in participating when The Fiji Times team arrived.

Villagers at Navala, took their time to get to Navala Catholic School where Elections Office staff had setup polling booths.

Some who were interviewed said there was some confusion as to whether participating in the pre-polling meant they would not have to take part in the September 17 elections.
