Voter registration weekend coming up

2016-04-05 06:00

THE weekend of 9 and 10 April is another registration weekend.

If you have moved since you last voted you will have to re-register to vote. Unlike the elections in 2014, this time around you have to vote in the ward where you live and at the voting station that serves your neighbourhood.

“During this last registration weekend many anomalies became apparent. Voters that had voted at the same voting station for 20 years and had not moved found they did not appear on the voters’ roll at that voting station. Others checked online and by SMS and were notified that they were registered, but when they went to the voting station to double check they found they did not appear on the printed voters’ roll.

I urge everyone to take the time to personally go down to their voting station with their ID and check if they appear on the voters’ roll. If you do not or if you have moved, fill out the REC-1 form to re-register,” said councillor Rick crouch.

“I am arranging for the IEC and Home Affairs to visit old-age homes, schools, etc, in order to register those that are unable to get to their voting station,” said Crouch.
