THIS year's local government elections have to take place between 18 May and 16 August with the term of office of current municipal councillors expiring in May.

For those who are eligible to vote, but have not yet registered all voting stations will be open this weekend, Saturday and Sunday. This is also an opportunity for voters to check they are on the voters’ roll.

To register to vote you must be 18 and be in possession of a South African ID. To check where your voting station is call 0800 118000.

If you are already registered SMS your ID number to 32810 to confirm and to receive a reminder of where voting station is. If your voting district has changed through demarcation you should receive a notice to that effect from the IEC.

If you want to have a say in the future of your town and district it is essential to vote in the local government elections. So register this weekend to make sure you can contribute.
