Cape Town - This year the passport to voting in the 7 May general election will be your green barcoded ID book.

However, if you're a holder of a new ID card you'll also be able to vote. Voters with temporary identity documents will also be allowed to vote.

IEC spokesperson Kate Bapela said there was confusion earlier on about the new ID cards being used in the election, but that it will not be a problem for voters.

People in possession of temporary identity documents will also be able to vote as this document indicate voters are in the process of obtaining permanent identification documents.

To vote in this year's election you must:
- be 18 years or older;
- be registered on on the voters' roll;
- be a South African citizen in possession of one of the identification documents mentioned above.

See where you have to vote by visiting our Where To Vote page.
