Johannesburg - Western Cape election officials will on Monday and Tuesday visit 24 438 voters in their homes, retirement centres, hospitals and other places so they could cast their vote, the Electoral Commission of SA said on Sunday.

"[A number of] 9 208 voters have successfully applied to cast their vote at the voting station where they are registered over these two days," said IEC Western Cape provincial electoral officer Courtney Sampson in a statement.

"Special votes will be cast between 09:00 and 17:00 on both days."

Only registered voters that applied to the commission to cast their vote on Monday and Tuesday, and have been informed via SMS or other means that their application was successful, would be allowed to vote.

He said not all the 1 578 voting stations in the Western Cape would be open.

"Only the voting districts where successful applications have been processed will have open venues for voting."
