Last chance for registration

2016-04-06 06:00

THE second and final registration weekend for the 2016 municipal elections is Saturday (09/04) and Sunday (10/04), the Independent Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) has announced.

Voting stations nationwide will be open from 08:00 until 17:00 on both these days. Potential voters are afforded another chance to register in order to vote in this year’s local government (municipal) elections.

South African citizens who are 16 years of age and older can register to vote. Each voter needs a green barcoded ID book, a smartcard ID or a temporary identity certificate to be eligible to register.

People who have changed their residence will need to re-register at the voting station where they live, as well as those whose voting district boundaries have changed.

Voters may also go to the various voting stations to check their details and ensure they still appear on the voters’ roll.

The municipal elections are held every five years to elect local councillors.

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
