7 percent increase in voters registered for 2022 General Elections

Males surpass females in Fiji’s latest voter registration stats in which the 18-40 age cohort makes up a little over 50 percent of the country’s eligible voting population which stands at 682,569 as of 14 April 2022.

The tally represents a seven percent increase compared to voters registered for the 2018 General Elections.

The revised tally comes on the back of new registrations including 39,992 first-timers and the removal of 10,905 deceased voters in the six-month period dating back to 3 October 2021.

FEO stats show that males equate to 50.1 percent of the registered voters and the women, 49.9 percent. This is around the same gender make-up in the 2018 General Election.

Age-group wise, the 18- to 40-year-olds make up a little over 50% of the registered populace, compared to 52 percent in 2018.

Meanwhile, in terms of divisional distribution, the central division is home to the most number of eligible voters at 42.87 percent followed by the West with 37.60 percent, 14.54% in the North, 3.93% in the East, and 1.06% are based overseas.
