Where do I vote?

Please remember that you must be a registered voter in South Africa in order to vote. To confirm that your name is on the voters' roll and to find out which voting station you're registered at, please check your voter registration status online, SMS your ID number to 32810, call 0800 11 8000 or check on our mobile app.

National and Provincial Elections

Within South Africa

You need to vote at the voting station where you're registered to vote.

However, if you're outside your voting district on Election Day, you may vote at another voting station in South Africa. If you're outside the province where you're registered, you'll only be able to vote in the national election and not the provincial election. You may be required to provide proof of registration (application sticker pasted in your ID when you applied for registration) if the zip-zip scanner is unable to verify your registration. You'll also have to complete a form (VEC 4) at the voting station.

Outside South Africa

You need to vote at the South African embassy, high commission or consulate-general you selected when you submitted your VEC10 notification of your intention to vote abroad.

Municipal Elections and By-Elections

You can only vote at the voting station at which you're registered.
