Limited pre-polling for the National General Election opens today in Solomon Islands.
It is the first time the process has been introduced under the country's new Electoral Act.
Only those electoral officials and police officers who will be involved in conducting the election on 03 April and who have registered for pre-polling will be able to cast their votes today.
A statement from the electoral office said uptake has been low for the inaugral pre-poll but there will be valuable lessons learned and applied to plans to extend the service to other electors in future elections.
Pre-polling will take place in Honiara and all provincial headquarters after which the votes will be transported to respective constituencies and added to votes cast on 3 April.
