Over 1,500 voter registration stations to be open in the Western Cape on Sunday

On Sunday, more than 500 voter registration locations will be operational in the Western Cape.

CAPE TOWN: In one last effort to persuade voters to register or update their information, more than 1,500 stations across the province will reopen on Sunday.

According to preliminary data, more than 60,000 people had contacted the provincial Electoral Commission by late Saturday, either in person or online.

Alan Winde, the Democratic Alliance’s premier candidate, is driving the effort to encourage more young people in particular to register. The alliance wants to expand its 15-year control over this province and ultimately use it as a platform to improve its prospects nationally.

Around 400,000 people under the age of 29 are not counted as voters in this province, according to estimates.

John Steenhuisen, the party’s leader, is anticipated to participate in the registration process on Sunday morning.

They will be posted outside each of the province’s more than 1,500 polling places, leaving nothing to chance.

Meanwhile, the National Executive Committee ( NEC ) members Mcebisi Skwatsha and Supra Mahumapelo are expected to spearhead the African National Congress’ ( ANC ) efforts up the west coast in Saldanha Bay’s fishing community on Sunday.

However, two polling places in the Philippi neighborhood of the city’s Marikana informal settlement will be closed for another day.

According to the Electoral Commission, the community requested this because they were concerned that it might rekindle tensions regarding service delivery.
