The Fijian Elections team had set up two polling stations at the Reverend Tuvasu Hall where its members were given the opportunity to cast their votes and have a say on which political party was to make up government.
The members of the Republic of the Fiji Military Forces, the Fiji Police Force and Royal Navy were guided to the ballot boxes by election officials under the watchful eyes of members of the Multinational Observers Group.
Meanwhile, villagers of Cicia Island in Lau waited until midday yesterday to start casting their votes as the boat carrying election material arrived late to the island.
Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem confirmed voting was postponed to midday, however, villagers from the four villages on the island were notified of the delay and changes made to the time schedules.
