ABOUT 200 people voted at the Nabumakita Village community hall yesterday.

Village headman Sakiusa Naidegidegi said the oldest villager to vote was Ruci Lewavai.

"She's nearing her 90s and although she needed help, she was happy to vote.

"This is something that we've been preparing for and many of our villagers were excited to be part of this important time," he said.

First-time voter, Manoa Natorogia says his vote went to the person he believes will lead the country to a better future.

"There's been a lot of things said over the past few years and a lot of discussions about certain things. But today is about choosing the person who can come through for the people," he said.

Paula Navenato, 74, says being part of another election was his civic duty.

"I could've easily not registered and carried on with my life but an election does not come around often so I wanted to be part of this process."

Nasau District is one of five villages chosen as pre-polling sites.
