Electoral Commission on voter registration for municipal by-elections

Voter registration this weekend for wards to be contested in Municipal By-Elections on 27 November 2019

Voter registration will be held this weekend for five (5) municipal ward by-elections scheduled to take place in the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Limpopo provinces on Wednesday, 27 November 2019.

Voting stations in the wards listed below will be open this Saturday, 12 October 2019, and Sunday, 13 October 2019, 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.
