How do I know if I need to re-register?
To find out if you need to re-register:
Or alternatively, you can:
- Check your voter registration details and make a note of your voting station and voting district number.
Go to our Voting Station Finder and search for your current home address. On the map, locate the voting district number (blue digits within the green borders of your district - see below). Compare the voting district number here to your registration details - if they're not the same, you need to re-register in your new voting district.
Apply for registration in your new voting district at your new voting station during a registration weekend (takes place in the months before a major election), or at the local IEC office responsible for your voting district during office hours (please phone first to make an appointment). Important: Please note that you can't register at our national or provincial offices, only the local IEC offices.
Wait at least 7 days and then check your voter registration details again to make sure your voting district and voting station have changed.
Please note: Voting station venues may change, so please check your voter registration details to confirm your voting station before going there to register (only during special registration weekends) or vote.
