Voters in Nauru have until midday today to ensure they are on the electoral roll or if they wish to move districts ahead of the election called for June the 8th.
Nominations open this morning and will close on Saturday the 1st of June.
This follows the imposition of a state of emergency by the president, Sprent Dabwido, on Monday, which allowed him to bring the election forward by two weeks.
Voters wanting to move districts have restricted options compared with previous elections.
They can register in their original district or the one in which they are currently living.
Reports from Nauru say there was multiple swapping of districts in the last poll and this was a significant factor in the election outcome.
