2016-03-17 06:00

THE Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) announced that
voter registration will continue
until election date, and another weekend - 9 and 10 April - has been set aside for those who did not register, said KZN IEC spokesperson Thabani Ngwira.

He said the recent weekend’s registrations went smoothly.

“The Electoral Commission in KwaZulu-Natal is happy to
report that registration weekend went smoothly except in a few
areas that reported protests, which resulted in the delayed opening of voting stations,” said Ngwira.

The IEC’s expectation of voters was a 1 000 000.

“The commission went into the registration weekend with the hope of getting one million people to register, check and update their registration details on the voters roll.

“Provincial registration statistics show that 864 295 people
visited voting stations to register, re-register and/or update their details

“Voter registration continues until the election date is proclaimed by the National Minister of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs. Voters must visit local municipal offices to register and updated their address details during office hours - 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday,” he said.
