Brace yourselves… election season is coming. Get ready for unsolicited phone calls, perhaps a bit of lopping of trees you’ve been begging the council to do and definitely a lot of road retarring.
South Africans will take to the polls on 3 August 2016 for the municipal elections.
Announced on the presidency’s website, South Africans will be able to go to the polls on what will be the first Wednesday of August.
The announcement also stressed the date of the final voter registration weekend, 9-10 April.
