The Bougainville Referendum Commission has ramped up its awareness campaign, sending text messages to people's mobile phones.
In October Bougainvilleans will get to vote on whether they want to be independent of Papua New Guinea.
New Dawn FM reported the Chief Referendum Officer, Mauricio Claudio, saying sending text messages had become possible as the commission gained more staffing and resources.
Mr Claudio said all media need to be used to ensure everyone has the same access to information.
He said the commission now has over 500 trained awareness officers covering every ward and urban centre in Bougainville, a website and a Facebook page
Recent research suggests almost three quarters of Bougainville's population has access to a mobile phone.
