How to change your voter registration details online

The upcoming 2019 general elections will help determine how the country is run over the next five years, so it is important that all South Africans vote.

Registrations end on the weekend of 26-27 January 2019, but even if you have registered to vote in the past, you may not be registered to vote at your nearest voting station.

Lekker, done mine and confirmed its updated. Will do the wife's later.

Going to register tomorrow would have thrown a serious spanner in the works for me.

Same here! Was not looking forward to standing in that queue on a Saturday.

Should take up to an hour to reflect the updated address...I've done mine over 5 hours ago and still no luck...I sincerely hope it gets updated throughout the day, really don't want to hit the queues this weekend...

Thanks, I changed mine now, I will change my wife's tomorrow. But how stupid is this, I stay in the bottom part of the map, I've got multiple voting stations within walking distance of the gate, but I must drive all the way to Koelenhof to vote. Bloody stupid.

Updated. Took less than 10 minutes to reflect after updating.

If they are making voting such a bloody pain many might just say f it. I am almost tempted to say just that.

You won't be the first/last/only one.

They are just as corrupt. All the parties are tarred with the same brush. It's Hobsons choice when it comes to choosing a party to vote for.

They are all the same, it's like choosing between syphilis and aids.
That's an easy choice if you have to pick one.
syphilis=bacteria=cure via single injection
aids(hiv)=virus=no cure only management

But by default you would prefer to have neither.
