Local government elections 2021- Voting stations open from 7am until 9pm


South Africans are voting in the Local Government Elections on Monday, 1 November. Over 23 000 polling stations are set to open at 7 am and they are expected to operate until 9 pm.
Over 80% of special votes were cast throughout the country over the weekend. More than 26-million South Africans have registered to vote.

IEC Chairperson, Glen Mashinini says it is the priority of the Commission to conduct safe elections in the context of the pandemic.

“Electoral staff will be provided with the necessary personal protective equipment to minimise the risk of spreading of the virus. The following acceptable methods to prevent the spread of COVID-19 will be enforced. Among them is maintaining social distancing by observing distance of at least a meter & a half away from each other or the next person and sanitising frequently,” says Mashinini.

Mashinini says though the IEC will provide pens, they encourage voters to bring their own. The pens will be provided and disinfected after each use. However, voters are encouraged; should they wish to do so, they should bring their own pens,” says Mashinini.
