Fiji's Elections Office says at the end of July almost 576,000 people had registered to vote in Fiji's election.

Voter registration closed yesterday evening.

About 5,000 people have registered as overseas voters for the polls on September the 17th.

The Supervisor of Eelections, Mohammed Saneem, says his office was encouraged by the large number of people turning up to register at the weekend.
