Its Voting Registration Weekend

The Independent Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) have reported that about 26.2 million people are registered to vote, representing only around 66% of the country’s voting-age population. With a new generation of voters that have aged up since the last general election in 2019, the statistics of youth that are not yet prepared to vote or participate in the political future is a concerning one. Interestingly, voter turnout has also been on a downward trajectory since our hard-won democratic election in 1994.

With a new online voting registration portal and around 23 000 registration stations across the country to be erected over this weekend, it has never been easier to register to put your ‘X’ down in 2024.
