Rustenburg Final Election Registration Weekend- 8 & 9 February 2014
Rusties would just like to remind our readers that 2014 is election year. We want to encourage you to make sure that you are registered to vote.
You can register at your correct voting station on 8 or 9 February from 8am to 5pm. To find your correct voting station, use the online voting station map or call 0800 11 8000 (open Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm). You can also apply for registration at your local Municipal Electoral Office during office hours, but please phone first to make an appointment.
By law, you must apply in person (no online or email registrations are permitted). Please bring your valid –
- South African, green, bar-coded ID book,
- Smartcard ID, or
- Temporary Identity Certificate (TIC) if you don’t have an ID book.
What happens when I apply?
- Go to your voting station or Municipal Electoral Office (or diplomatic mission if registering abroad)
- Fill in an “Application for Registration as a Voter” form
- Your ID book is scanned
- A bar-coded sticker is pasted in your ID book
When do I have to re-register?
The IEC continuously strive to provide a better voting experience for voters by ensuring accessibility to voting stations and trying to reduce long queues on Election Day.
To help them achieve this, you need to re-register when:
- your home address changes (see Moved since you registered? to find out how to check if your voting district has changed), or
- the IEC inform you that your voting district has changed. Check your voter registration details to find out if you may have to re-register.
How do I know if or where I’m registered?
To check your registration status, you can:
- send a SMS with your ID number to 32810;
- check your voter registration details online;
- call our call centre on 0800 11 8000 (toll-free from a landline);
- check at your voting station during a registration weekend; or
- check at your local Municipal Electoral Office during office hours.
Note: It can take up to 7 working days for your registration application to be processed.
