Bula Vinaka and Welcome to the Fijian Elections Office (FEO) Website.
Here, you can find all the latest information about the FEO’s activities and services.
We are currently preparing for the 2014 General Election. Following the issue of the Writ for the General Election, voter registration has now closed. The National Candidates List has been released and can be viewed on this website.
All registered voters for the 2014 General Election should now check the Polling Station that they have been assigned to vote at. Registered Voters can also text their EVR Number to 545 to find out their Polling Station. This is a free service.
For the first time in Fiji’s history, the 2014 General Elections has a call center. You can call 545 from any network in Fiji for free and make enquiries about the Election.
For Fijians who had registered from overseas to vote in the 2014 General Election, you will be voting by post and you can learn more about this on our website.
Voter awareness started on 16 June 2014. A Voter Information Guide has been released in all 3 languages and has been widely distributed around the country. FEO has also conducted a Fiji wide roadshow to mark the beginning of the voter awareness. Teams have also been dispatched all over the country to conduct community sessions with Fijians in person. The FEO will continue voter awareness programs until 17 September.
FEO has also established its offices around the Country. Our Offices will provide general services for voters and we urge all voters to take full advantage of them.
Every Fijian is gaining an equal voice for the first time. Every Fijian is gaining a vote of equal value. Raise your voice and use your vote for a truly democratic Fiji.
