Only one voter registration weekend ahead of elections- IEC

The Independent Electoral Commission says due to budgetary constraints it will only have one voter registration weekend ahead of the Local Government Elections expected later this year.

The IEC says there are around 1.2 million registered voters that don’t have their addresses registered, which might make it difficult for them to vote.

IEC CEO Simon Mamabolo appealed to the public to visit IEC centres when the registration weekend is announced to verify their details.
