Last chance to register to vote

Voters have been urged to visit their local electoral commission offices before 17:00 on Monday, 23 May if they want to verify or update their details

Today is the final day for voters to register for the coming local government elections.

Co-operative Governance Minister Des van Rooyen will officially proclaim the 3 August polls, meaning the voters roll will be closed, and no additional registrations will be allowed thereafter.

Once the election is proclaimed no changes to the voters’ roll, including additional registrations or reregistrations, will be accepted.

Voters should visit their local IEC office with an official South African ID document - either a green barcoded ID book, a smartcard ID or a valid temporary identity certificate.

IEC offices will open at 08:00 and will remain open until 17:00 on Monday to accommodate last-minute registrations.
The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) address is:
