Voter Registration for wards contesting in Municipal By-Elections

Voter registration will be held this weekend for six municipal ward by-elections scheduled to take place in the Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and Western Cape provinces on Wednesday, 24 July 2019.

Voting stations in the wards listed below will be open this Saturday, 8 June and Sunday, 9 June from 08h00 to 17h00 to allow all eligible voters to register and for current voters to check their registration details and to provide/update address details where necessary.

Voters should take their identity document (ID) with them – either a green barcoded ID book, a smartcard ID, or a valid Temporary ID Certificate. They will also need to complete their physical home address on registration or provide sufficient particularities of their place of residence. Documented proof of address (e.g. a municipal account) is not required.

Voters may also check and update their details at their local (municipal) Electoral Commission (IEC) office weekdays during office hours.

Voters are reminded that it is a criminal offence to register and vote in a ward in which they are not ordinarily resident.
