Should Samoans overseas be allowed to vote?

Saida Fagalima Mamea, 20, Moataa

I think they shouldn't vote from overseas. They should come to Samoa to vote. If you want to vote then come to Samoa.

They should come here to vote. The election is happening here in Samoa, it is not happening overseas. If you want to vote then you should come to Samoa.

Foga Peni, 45, Salelologa

There are many Samoans living overseas that want to come and vote but right now the borders are closed but I think they should vote. They should be given the opportunity to vote.

There should be a flight to bring them here if they want to vote. If it is difficult to travel to Samoa because of COVID-19 that has stopped many flights then they could let us know who they want to vote for. It should be done online so that people overseas can vote.

Risati Mamea, 51, Toamua

They should be given the opportunity to vote because I don't know when the borders will reopen. They should be given the opportunity if they want to vote.

Tafi Papu, 29, Vaitele

The Samoans living overseas should come here to vote, they cannot do that overseas. If people living overseas are to cast their votes then some of them will just cast their votes without thinking about it since they are living overseas.
