JOHANNESBURG- The Electoral Commission ( IEC ) overreached its goal of enrolling 1 million voters for the upcoming general elections in 2024.
One million people had successfully registered at more than 23, 000 voting locations nationwide, according to the commission, as of Saturday when voting stations closed.
With 100,000 people registering on the IEC website on Saturday, the online portal also set record-breaking records.
According to the IEC, more than 600,000 people had registered by early Sunday afternoon, and 40 000 had used the online portal.
This is in light of worries about low voter turnout across the nation.
The commission continued by saying it was addressing some online registration issues that were marked as “pending.”
- Political parties beg SAns to care about the future of their nation.
- Steenhuisen is a sufficient incentive for citizens of South Africa to cast their ballots.
- During the voter registration drive, a Chiawelo resident tells Ramaphosa,” Too late.”
- Although there are challenges, life is much better now than it was before the ANC.
- Political tolerance at KZN registration stations is praised by IFP’s Hlabisa.
