Provincial Electoral Officer – Independent Electoral Commission, Rev Courtney Sampson gives a simple breakdown of what to do do and why to do it on this last voter registration weekend, 9 and 10 April.
Voting stations will be open from 8am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.
• Those who have never registered before, can register for the first time.
• Those who have moved homes, can change their addresses to the correct ones.
• Those who have received messages, can visit the stations to check all their details are correct.
Call the hotline 0800 11 8000 or sms ID number to 32810 to check if you are registered.
We need to understand as South African citizens that you can only vote if your name appears on the National Common Voters Roll, and the way to get your name on the roll is by registering as a voter. It's a local government election, so we have to register and vote where we live. So addresses become a very important aspect of this election.— Rev Courtney Sampson, Provincial Electoral Officer, IEC
