Cape Town - The final voter registration weekend for the 2016 Municipal Elections takes place on April 9 and 10, 2016.

The municipal elections are different to provincial and national elections. Municipal elections are held every five years to elect councillors who are part of a municipal council. A municipal council governs the municipality and works to ensure services such as water, refuse, electricity and sanitation, are accessible to residents.

A smartcard ID or valid temporary identity certificate (TIC) are also legitimate forms of identification. A passport and driver’s licence are not.

E-mail and online registration are not legitimate.
