The nation gears up for the 2019 elections on Wednesday, 8 May.

Those new to the process often have questions which may deter them from making their mark.

Briefly.co.za answers three frequently-asked questions to hopefully assist citizens to make an informed decision.

1. How do I find my nearest voting station?

Two options exist here. Voters can either access this link, which utilises GPS technology for users to pinpoint their location on a map - https://maps.elections.org.za/vsfinder/

Alternatively, you can follow the below process:

  • Send an SMS with your ID number to 32810 (R1 charge per SMS)
  • Check your registration details online
  • Check at your local IEC office during office hours

2. Can I vote anywhere?

You can vote anywhere inside the province you are registered in, provided that you are registered.

If you are outside of your registered province, you can only cast a national vote, but not a provincial vote.

However, you will be required to fill in a special form if you vote outside your province.
