  • Nelson Mandela Bay Metro has the most newly-registered voters in the Eastern Cape for the 2019 National and Provincial

Elections that take place on May 8.

  • There are 14 084 newly-registered voters in the Nelson Mandela Metro.
  • The most newly-registered voters in the Eastern Cape are between the ages of 20 and 29.
  • Take your ID with you when you vote.
  • You can only vote once.
  • Do not pretend to be someone else.
  • Do not remove the ink from your finger.

How do you make your mark?

  • Make your mark in the blank box next to the party of your choice.
  • Be careful not to let your mark touch any of the walls of the box.
  • Make only one mark on the ballot paper: It is best to make a cross like this:


  • If you have made a mistake, do not put your ballot paper in the box. Tell the IEC official. He or she will then cancel your ballot paper. You will be given a new one.
  • Fold each ballot paper in half, so nobody can see your mark.
  • An IEC official will check the stamp on the back of each ballot. You then place your ballot

papers in the relevant ballot boxes.

  • Your vote is your secret.
