Lydenburg; know your voting election venues

The election will provide South Africans with a national and provincial vote to elect a new National Assembly and State Legislatures. The National Assembly will choose the president for the next five years. It will be the country’s seventh democratic general election since apartheid ended in 1994, when Nelson Mandela was elected president with the ANC winning 62.5% of the 400 seats in the National Assembly.
A key reminder for tomorrow’s proceedings include that you will receive three ballots and not just two as in the past elections.

What to expect on Wednesday:
• Three ballot papers must be completed and they are:
Ballot 1: A national ballot to vote for a political party to represent you in the National Assembly.
Ballot 2: A regional ballot is a new one to vote for political parties or independent candidates contesting in a specific region (province) for elections to the National Assembly.
Ballot 3: A provincial ballot to vote for political parties or independent candidates contesting elections of the Provincial Legislature.
• Independent candidates: For the first time in South Africa, people who are not associated with political parties may stand as independent candidates to contest National and Provincial Elections, due to the 2023 Electoral Amendment Act.
