VILLAGERS of Dreketi and Togo are still confused about the new voting processes. Dreketi villager Mele Feoko said they were aware of the election being held yesterday but were concerned about the new voting system.

Togo villager Titilia Tupou said the majority of the villagers were still not aware of the voting processes.

More than 200 voters were expected to cast their vote in the village, including those from the settlements of Niubavu, Matagi, Korowaiwai, Namata and Lali.

The head of the Vuanimaba clan in Kocoma Village, Kaminieli Lotu, said the villagers were eagerly waiting to cast their votes.

Mr Lotu said most of the villagers were aware of the voting processes but he admitted there were some who were still not aware.

He said those who were not aware of the processes had failed to attend the awareness campaign held in the village earlier last month.

Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem said officials would assist those not familiar with the voting processes at the polling stations.
