Checking Whether you are Registered on the Voters' Roll

Before you can vote in an election, you need to be registered on the voter's roll.

The Roll contains the details of individual voters and is an important planning tool. For example, it allows the IEC to know how many people are likely to vote in each area so that they can ensure that there are sufficient voting stations.

The Voters' Roll is also an important way of preventing electoral fraud.

There are around 2,584,871 voters registered in the Western Cape

You can check whether you are registered online. To do this, you will need to have your ID number. If you are registered, your Voters' Roll details will be displayed, including where you are registered.

You can also phone the IEC toll-free number: 0800 11 8000 or visit your local Municipal Electoral Office to check your registration details.
