Johannesburg - Seven people have been arrested for damaging election material at a registration station in Taung, North West, police said on Sunday.

Three women and four men allegedly forced entry into a voter registration station at Itlameng Primary School on Saturday around 07:40, Colonel Sabata Mokgwabone.

Damaging election material is prohibited in terms of Section (1) (c) of the Electoral Act of 1998, he said.

They were arrested on Sunday afternoon. They are aged between 20 and 33.

The group would appear in the Taung Magistrate's Court on Monday.
