The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) says day two of the voter registration is going smoothly. The IEC will close the registration points at 5pm.

The IEC believes it is on track to get two million first time voters to register before the 2014 national elections as the second day of voter registration gets underway.

Only 0.23 percent of the 22,000 voting stations have been disrupted by service delivery protests in Limpopo, Bekkersdal and Western and Eastern Cape so far.

The first day of the registration weekend ran smoothly with isolated incidents of service delivery protests which halted the registration process for limited time.

The IEC’s Mosotho Moepya told EWN: “Eligible voters that are out there that have not yet registered to vote; we are asking them in their thousands of numbers.”
