Tuvaluan voters will be able to cast ballots from anywhere in the country during the September parliamentary election, a government official announced on Monday. Parliamentarians in Tuvalu represent multi-member constituencies, but voters will be able to vote for their district’s representatives regardless of which polling station they are at. Tuvaluans living abroad, however, will be unable to cast overseas ballots. On September 16, approximately five thousand voters will be eligible to elect the entire 15-member parliament.
