Where and how do I Register?

Don’t miss the second and final registration weekend for the 2016 Municipal Elections on 9 and 10 April 2016. Voting stations will be open nationwide for registration from 8am to 5pm both days.

Why do I need to register?

To vote in elections, you must register as a voter. You only have to register once, unless you move (within South Africa) or your voting district boundaries change. Click here for more information.

During municipal elections and by-elections, you have to vote at the voting station where you are registered, so it is important to re-register whenever you move or your voting district boundaries change.
