South Africa: DA Welcomes Overseas Registration Dates

press release

The Democratic Alliance is pleased by the Independent Electoral Commission's announcement of the international registration dates for the upcoming 2014 elections.

The Democratic Alliance calls on all South Africans living abroad to use this opportunity to register to vote in the upcoming elections.

South Africans living abroad will be able to register to vote at their closest South African embassy, high commission or consulate during normal working hours up until the 7th February. Special registration weekends will also be held on the 18 - 19 January and 25 - 26 January.

The DA and its DA Abroad structures are committed to assisting South Africans with registration information over the course of the next few weeks. South Africans who wish to access more information can contact us at contact@da-abroad.org

Voting is the foundational democratic right and these elections will be crucial for South Africa. Every vote counts.

We are counting on all South Africans living abroad and in South Africa to go out and register to vote.

Helen Zille, Leader of the Democratic Alliance
