Voting stations in the wards listed below will open this Saturday, 7 October 2017 and Sunday, 8 October 2017 from 08h00 to 17h00 to allow all eligible voters to register, and for existing voters to check their registration details and to provide/update address details where necessary.

Voters should take their Identity Document 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.
