Fiji workers prepare polls

4:39 pm on 16 September 2014

Fiji election workers have started preparing polling stations before tomorrow's vote.

Voters are also getting prepared, with some stocking up on food.

Sally Round has been talking to people on the streets of Nadi.

"Many voters say they are looking forward to election day, with some saying it was important to finally have their say after eight years under military rule. But some say they haven't registered, and it was no point voting after four coups. Several shopkeepers noted people stocking up on basic supplies in case of trouble after the vote. One woman says she has even moved into the mountains because she fears instability. People have to vote in assigned polling stations and a public holiday has been assigned for voting day."
