Get ready to make your mark on 1 November

South Africans across the country will be heading to the polls to choose their local, district or metropolitan representative in each of the country's nine provinces. This will be the country’s sixth municipal elections since 1994 and for many, it will be the first time they will have an opportunity to vote.


Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma announced the election date following the Constitutional Court’s refusal of the Electoral Commission of South Africa’s (IEC) application for the postponement of the elections.


“After consultation with the IEC, we have come to the determination that this year’s local government elections will be held on 1 November. These elections are important to advance our young democracy. They mark the 21st anniversary since the establishment of a democratic local government system in the country. This sphere of government remains the hope of people as it is the sphere closest to them and is the coalface of service delivery,” she said.


The official proclamation effectively closes the voters roll.
