Voters can still register for municipal election

2016-04-21 06:00

RESIDENTS who were unable to register to vote during the registration weekends, can still visit the local Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) in Humansdorp and be added to the voters’ roll.

No proof of residential addresses is required at this stage, but voters must take their green ID-book or Smart ID card with them.

“It is essential that all voters are registered to vote in the ward in which they reside,” says Elza Van Lingen, the DA Mayoral candidate for Kouga. “This is the most important election ever to be held in Kouga and all voters need to exercise their democratic right and vote on August 3.”

For a local government election voters can only vote where they are living and not in another town or province.

Kouga is going to be a tightly contested municipality, the ANC and the DA being the parties with a good chance of winning the election.

Currently the ANC governs the Kouga, as it had 15 councillors elected in the 2011 election, with the DA winning 14 seats.

The IEC office is situated at Shop 14 at the Arcade Centre in Main Street, Humansdorp - opposite Jet Stores. For more information, contact the local IEC at 042 295 2079.
