What happens if you not in SA on voting day?

The 7 May has been proclaimed as election day in South Africa.

Win Kouga

If a voter expects to be overseas on 30 April and not in the country by 7 May, then he/she must apply for an overseas vote before 12 March and vote on 30 April.

If a voter will be in the country on 5 or 6 May, but not on 7 May then he/she must apply for a special vote between 7 and 17 April and vote on one of the special voting days.

If a voter will not be overseas and able to go to an embassy, consulate or mission on 30 April but will also not be in South Africa between 5 and 7 May, then they simply do not fall into any window where the IEC can assist and they will not be able to vote.
