It is time to vote

13 May 2014 No Comment

The time has come for all eligible South Africans to cast their votes on 7 May 2014.
With so many political parties, we trust that you have listened and will decide to vote for the party that you think will take South Africa to a prosperous future for all.
Some people have contacted The Centurion with question about the election and therefore we would like to offer the following basic information based on their questions:
* The 7 May 2014 has been declared a public holiday signed by President Zuma and gazetted on 25 February 2014 – a copy can be obtained from this office.
* You can only vote if you have registered. To find out you can SMS your ID number to 32810 or visit the IEC’s website. A mobile app can also be downloaded from the website.
* You can vote at another voting station but if it is outside the province you are registered, you can only vote on the national ballot paper.
* All pensioners older than 60 years, pregnant women and people with small children do not need to stand in the queue.
* Make sure both ballot papers, national and provincial, are stamped on the back.
* Make sure not to draw your cross not touching the lines of the relevant block. If you make a mistake you may ask the presiding officer for another ballot paper – make sure the incorrect one is marked “cancelled”
* You may use your own black ink pen to vote.
We wish all a peaceful voting day and we are looking forward to the new era in government that is imminent.
