[London, 11 March 2014] The DA Abroad expresses its deep concern at the low number of South Africans who have submitted the VEC10 form and informed the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) of their intention to vote abroad. With less than 24hrs left till the deadline for VEC10 submissions, only around 20,000 VEC10 forms have been counted.
On Thursday, 27th March, we had the pleasure of hearing from Tim Harris on strategies for the recovery of the South African economy as well as the DA's priorities for the upcoming election. While the realities of the key issues prohibiting the South African economy from reaching its growth potential were somewhat daunting, Tim also highlighted how the DA would tackle these challenges should they be voted into government, and remained optimistic about the future of our country, especially with the DA at its helm.
We receive a lot of emails from South Africans living abroad asking if they can vote in national elections, what they need to do to vote and how they can vote, amongst many other question, so we've put together this basic guide to answer all your questions.
