The Independent Electoral Commission in KwaZulu-Natal says it is pleased with the number of people who have visited voting stations to register over the weekend.
Over 300 000 people visited registration stations in KwaZulu-Natal to register and update their details on the voter’s roll. IEC Commissioner Judge Dhaya Pillay says she is satisfied with the number of people who have visited polling stations to register.
Over 187 000 people visited registration stations in KwaZulu-Natal to register and update their details on the voter’s roll on Saturday. Amongst those people, over 34 thousand were youngsters registering for the first time.
Nationally the IEC had set a target of 1 million voters for this registration weekend. Judge Pillay says they have exceeded their target.
“Numbers show and the anecdote report we are getting shows that there is a great uptake in the number of registrations the participation has exceeded our expectation even on the first day, we set the target of 1 million for the weekend but we hit that target last night. So I think people are taking the theme of these elections that ‘We must own our democracy’ quite seriously, and responding to that campaign message, so we are very pleased about that.
