National and Provincial Elections
Within South Africa
You need to vote at the voting station where you're registered to vote. Please check your
voter registration status
to find out which voting station you're registered to vote at.
However, if you're outside your voting district on Election Day, you may vote at another voting station in South Africa (use the
Voting Station Finder
to find your correct station). 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 VEC 10 notification of your intention to vote abroad. You must have an approved VEC10 in order to vote outside South Africa. Find out
how to register and vote abroad.
