If you haven't registered to vote yet this is your last chance

Voters who have not yet registered have until 17:00 on Tuesday 25 February to do so.

The official proclamation of this year's election date in the Government Gazette will take place on Tuesday, which will mean that the voters' roll automatically closes.

President Jacob Zuma signed the proclamation that sets 7 May 2014 as the election date last Friday, and the proclamation will be published on Tuesday.

"According to Section 24(1) of the Electoral Act, 1998, the voters' roll will close on the day the election is proclaimed, which will be the 25th of February,” the presidency said in a statement.

The IEC said on its Facebook page: "The Presidency has indicated that proclamation will take place on Tuesday 25 February 2014. The voters' roll will close at 17h00 on the 25 February."
