Cape Town - With voting taking place tomorrow some registered voters seem confused about certain aspects of the process.Check if you are registered and where you can vote.Watch
below to find out everything you need to know to cast your vote.
What you have to take with you:
- Your green barcode ID
(Or a Temporary Identity Certificate (TIC) that the Department of Home Affairs will have to issue, and be valid on voting day)Can I vote at another voting station?
You need to vote at the voting station where you're registered to vote. However, if you're outside of your voting district on Election Day you may vote at another voting station in South Africa, and you'll be asked to complete a VEC 4 form at the voting station. If you vote outside your province though, you won't be able to vote in the provincial elections, only nationally.
Basically the reason you should vote at your station is due to the large scale of this logistical process, and to prevent you from not being able to vote due to certain forms not available at the voting station. Photos, selfies, video - where can I take it?
Don't take a selfie, or any type of photograph, while in the voting station - especially not when you're in the voting booth.Leanne Manas
, Morning Live presenter and radio personality at the SABC, tweeted police are serious about the "election selfie" issue. "A district mayor posted a selfie while voting & now facing stiff punishment!"
You are, however, allowed to take pictures outside the voting station. Remember to send us your selfie by ckecking in tomorrow on the News24 site - you could win a Samsung S5 or R1000 in cash. Be creative with your pictures: one with you and your friends' thumbs, your feet or photo bombing the queue.
