The DA Abroad is the overseas network of the Democratic Alliance (DA), a Liberal Democratic party that is the second largest party in South Africa. As South Africans living overseas we are proud to support the most diverse and dynamic party in South Africa.
We’ve been getting lots of questions about whether it’s possible to vote abroad in the upcoming local elections.
As the election taking place in South Africa this year is a Local Municipal Election you will only be able to vote at the local voting station in South Africa where you are registered, and so cannot vote abroad.
The next national election will be in 2019 at which time South Africans voting abroad will be able to vote. Please ensure that you are registered to vote and have both your ID book and passport with you in order to vote abroad.
