Monday marks the final day for voters to register for the coming local government elections.
Co-operative Governance Minister Des van Rooyen will officially proclaim the August 3 polls, meaning the voters roll will be closed, and no additional registrations will be allowed thereafter.
Voters have been urged to visit their local electoral commission offices before 5pm if they want to verify or update their details.
Deputy Chief Electoral Officer at the IEC, Sy Mamabolo says, “We already have 26. 2 million people on the roll. So today really is about accommodating the last minute decision makers.”
“We expect a steady flow of people but we are not anticipating people in their hundreds and thousands.
