Citizens living abroad who are already registered to vote – either on the national or international segment of the voters’ roll – need not re-register but will be required to inform the Electoral Commission of their intention to vote outside of the country.
They do so by completing a
secure notification online form
(Notification and Application to CEO for Special Votes Abroad) indicating the mission at which they intend voting. This form will is available on this website at www.elections.org.za from the date the national election is proclaimed for a 15-day period.
