12:12 pm on 12 October 2012

The Election Office in American Samoa says just over 17,700 voters have been registered for next month's polls.

The Chief Election Officer Soliai Tuipine says youth voters make up the majority of those who registered in the last week.

Yesterday was the last day for registration.

Soliai says with voter registration now closed, candidates can pick up voter lists for campaign purposes from the Election Office in Tafuna.

Renewal of expired voter cards and replacement for lost cards will continue up to the day before the elections.
