HI All, The Counsellor for Corporate Services at the South African Embassy in Harare has asked me to send this email out about voting in the South African Elections later this year. Please see his details below if you need any further details. Best Regards, Mike Garden
Election day in South Africa as well as abroad was today, 25 February 2014, proclaimed in the Government Gazette. This also means that no further registrations will be entertained. .
Voting abroad will take place on Wednesday, 30 APRIL 2014. By law it is not possible to vote abroad on any date other than 30 April 2014, and no exceptions will be made.
Applications are now open to notify the IEC of your intention to vote abroad and where (at which mission) citizens intend to vote, by completing a VEC10 form. This includes ALL South Africans who are registered and whose names appear on the voters’ roll, Diplomats and their households.
Applications need to be submitted ONLINE ONLY on the IEC website at www.elections.org.za and will close at midnight (SA time) on 12 March 2014. Applicants will receive either an e-mail or sms notification to acknowledge receipt of their application.
