Although election dates have not been announced for next year, the The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) has urged eligible voters across the county to update the voters’ roll. Voting stations across the country will be open on Saturday and Sunday to register both first-time voters and those wanting to re-register.
First time voters need a barcoded identity document or a smart card. Proof of residence is not necessary.
It is also possible to check whether you’re registered on the IEC website for which your ID number will be needed. An SMS with your ID number can also be sent to 32810 which will cost R1 per SMS.
