Thank you to all the hundreds of South Africans living around the world made the effort to register to vote at their nearest South African foreign mission this past weekend!
If you didn’t manage to register to vote, don’t worry, you still have time.
SA foreign missions will still be registering voters during their normal weekday opening hours right up until the date of the election is officially proclaimed.
Before heading to your nearest foreign mission please check first that you aren’t already registered to vote on the IEC’s website.
Note that you will need BOTH your SA ID and passport to register to vote.
If you are already registered, you don’t need to re-register, even if your registered address is in South Africa.
Once registered all you need to do is to fill in the VEC10 form on the IEC’s website when the date of the election is announced to inform the IEC where you would like to vote abroad. This form will only be available from the proclamation date.
Then on voting day you can take BOTH your SA ID and passport to vote at your nearest SA foreign mission.
Every vote counts! Here is a special message for South Africans abroad from DA Leader, Mmusi Maimane, encouraging you to register to vote.
If you still have questions about voting abroad in the 2019 election then please read our list of Frequently Asked Questions.
You can also subscribe to email updates using the form alongside or via WhatsApp on https://wa.me/447958291141/ (Send a message with your full name and SUBVOTINGABROAD) to ensure you don’t miss anything, especially the VEC10 form!
