Mayor urges residents to register to vote
​This weekend is the last opportunity for the public to register
to vote in the upcoming National and Provincial Elections
expected to take place in May. EThekwini Mayor Zandile
Gumede has urged residents to register to vote as well as
update their details on the voters' roll. 
ETHEKWINI Mayor Zandile Gumede has urged residents to register to vote as well as update their details on the voters’ roll during the final registration weekend taking place between 26 to 27 January.

This is the last opportunity for the public to register to vote in the upcoming National and Provincial Elections expected to take place in May. Eligible voters can also update their registration details at their voting station. Voting stations will be opened from 8am to 5pm over the registration weekend to assist new voters to register to vote, allow already registered voters who have moved to re-register in their correct voting district while allowing registered voters whose address details are not on the voters' roll to provide that information.

Mayor Gumede said it is important for the public to register to vote in order to exercise their democratic right to vote in the upcoming elections. She further urged ward councillors and political parties to assist the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) to mobilise residents to register to vote and verify their information on the voters' roll. “I urge the public, particularly the youth, to use this last opportunity to register to vote and update their voters' roll details. You can register at IEC offices or make use of the Sizakala Customer Care Centres which also provides this service,” said Mayor Gumede. When visiting the voting station, residents must ensure they take their green barcoded ID book, smart ID or temporary certificate.

For more information the public can call 0800 11 8000, Monday to Friday during office hours. The public can also update and review their address via the online facility, available at https://www.elections.org.za/myIEC/account/Register. Registered voters can also SMS their ID number to 32810 to receive an SMS containing the address of their voting station at a cost of R1.
