And for others who prefer otherwise, it's playing a game of tag with the police.
Joe Koro, a local resident of Manu, decided to visit the Koki Fish market before heading to Kaugere to vote.
He arrived at the seaside to an empty market where he had a run-in with police. But not before buying a string of fish at a doubled price.
"I came here to buy fish but the market was closed. Luckily, villagers from Roku arrived here with some catch,” he tells Loop PNG.
“They were selling a K25 string for K40 but I bargained and bought it for K35. Police came in and chased us so I got on with the villagers on their boat and we escaped to Ela Beach.”
He said they were advised the markets will open after lunch.
Only a few PMV buses are running.
