Villagers called for pre-polling

IT was like another normal day of activities and chores as the villagers of Nabouono in Udu went fishing and farming because they were informed polling would happen yesterday.

However, when The Fiji Times team contacted them to ask about their pre-polling day, village headman Epeli Batidamuni was surprised saying polling would begin today.

He then directed some men to call back those who had gone out to the forest.

Mr Batidamuni said their initial plan to sit and discuss the polling process on Wednesday would not happen as they would go into polling.

He also said 40 voters from the village were expected to cast their votes during the election.

However, he said a few voters were on Viti Levu visiting relatives.

Mr Batidamuni said pre-polling and election were not new for the villagers because past elections were always held in the village.

He said the awareness programs held during district and provincial meetings helped a lot.

Mr Batidamuni said he had also taken it upon himself to teach the villagers the new polling processes.
