Why do we have an election this year?

According to our Constitution, elections must take place every five years to elect our Members of Parliament (MPs) and Members of the Provincial Legislature (MPLs) in each province. The previous national and provincial election was held in 2014.

In this election, you will get two ballots (one provincial and one national ballot) to vote for the proportional representation of political parties in these legislative bodies.

What if I have moved since I last registered?

You are encouraged to vote at the voting station where you are registered, which you can locate with this tool, but you can vote at any voting station in your province.

If you are outside of the province where you are registered, you may vote but will only be able to vote on the national ballot.

What if I will be in another province?

You are encouraged to vote at the voting station where you are registered, which you can locate at check.da.org.za.

If you are outside of the province where you are registered, you may vote but will only be able to vote on the national ballot.

What do I need in order to vote?

All you will need is your valid, green, bar-coded ID book; temporary ID; or smart ID card. You do not need any FICA-type documents.

Do I need to take any proof of residence?

No, you do not. All you will need is your valid, green, bar-coded ID book; temporary ID; or smart ID card.
