Register to vote – there’s still time

Written by Staff reporter
South Africans can still register to vote after the last voter registration weekend of 8 - 9 February.

Those who did not take advantage of the Independent Electoral Commission’s (IEC) recent registration drive by registering at voting stations can still register at their local municipal electoral office during office hours.

If you choose to register at a municipal electoral office make sure you phone first to arrange a time.

To find the correct municipal electoral office where you can register, call the IEC on 0800 118 000.

To qualify as a voter, you must be a South African citizen, be at least 16 years old and have a green, bar- coded ID book or smart ID card.

To check your registration status, you can:

  • Send an SMS with your ID number to 32810.
  • Check your voter registration details online.
  • Call the IEC call centre on 0800 118 000.
  • Check at your local municipal electoral office during office hours.
