August 20 deadline for Fiji voters

7:03 am on 12 August 2014

Voters in Fiji have until August the 20th to correct or change their polling venues.

Voters have to place their ballots for the September 17th election at pre-assigned polling stations under Fiji's new-look electoral rules.

Fiji Live reports about 70-thousand registered voters have already made a change to their polling venue information.

Elections authorities each polling station has a total of 500 assigned voters.

They've brought in a text service for people wanting to find out their polling venue but can apply to have this changed.
