1. How does the IEC ensure security and non-intimidation at voting stations?
There are police and/or army personnel at every voting station to ensure your safety.
2. I am blind. Can someone help me at the voting station?
You can take anyone who is at least 18 years old and not a party agent with you to the voting station to help you cast your vote. You can also ask the presiding officer at the voting station to help you and/or provide you with a voting aid known as a universal ballot template (UBT).
3. I have registered, but I don’t want to vote. Will anything happen to me if I don’t vote?
No, voting is not compulsory in SA, however voting is an important civic duty and we encourage all South Africans to participate.
4. I’m in the SANDF/SAPS and on duty on Election Day. When will I vote?
If you’re a member of the SANDF or SAPS and are on duty on Election Day, you can apply for a special vote. Please see special votes for details.
5. Will election day be a public holiday?
This decision is made by The President in consultation with the Minister of Home Affairs, not by the IEC. However, if election day is a public holiday, the election timetable will say so.
6. Can I vote with my temporary registration certificate (TRC)?
No, you can only vote with your South African, green, bar-coded ID, smartcard ID or a valid Temporary Identity Certificate (TIC). You can apply for a green, bar-coded ID, smartcard ID or a valid Temporary Identity Certificate (TIC) from the Department of Home Affairs.
7. Can I vote if my new ID book has not arrived yet?
Yes, you can vote if you have a Temporary Identity Certificate (TIC) that is valid on Election Day. You can apply for a TIC at the Department of Home Affairs. Please remember, you will only be able to vote if you are a registered voter.
8. Can I register at my nearest voting station?
No, you must register at the voting station (only open for registration during special registration weekends) in your voting district, and this might not be the one closest to your home. To find out where your voting station is, please use the online Voting Station Finder.
