A new ward councillor for ward 82 will be elected next Wednesday as close to 16 000 voters make their mark.

The by-election has been scheduled to take place on Wednesday 13 November, with polling stations open from 07:00 to 19:00.

The IEC would like to advise voters that it is a criminal offence to register and vote in a ward in which they are not ordinarily resident.

Ward 82 covers the greater Tafelsig area and the position has become vacant following the death of ward councillor and subcouncil chairperson, Sheval Arendse, in August.

All voting stations within the ward will be open for voting day.

These stations are Tafelsig, Hugenot, Perserverance, Yellowwood and Cascade primary schools and the Nelson Mandela Youth and Family Centre.

The election will be contested by 10 candidates.

These candidates are made up of seven political party representatives and three independent candidates.

The candidates are:

Grant Jeremy Claasen from the African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP):

Marie Jeanette Olifant from the African National Congress (ANC):

Phila van der Heever from the Cape Party:

Washiela Harris from The Democratic Alliance (DA):

Sandra Shirley Poleman from the Democratic Independent Party (DI):

Daniel Peter Petersen from the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF):

Paul Anthony Daniels from the Good Party:

Independent candidates:
