IEC facilitates LRC elections at a local school

The school was honoured to have its high school LRC elections in the presence of the IEC official.

A team of six members of the Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) facilitated the elections at Curro Midrand Independent School on April 27, as part of the celebrations of Freedom Day.

The learners got to experience firsthand the manner in which elections are run – the procedures, the banners, the booths, and the officials were exactly what the IEC uses when the country’s elections are being held.

The school was honoured to have its high school LRC elections in the presence of the IEC officials. Last year, they also invited the IEC to host elections at the school and after that memorable experience, the school made sure that they invited them again.

“It is indeed an honour to create an ambiance of voters from these early years at our school,” stated the school in a statement.

“We can only hope that this legacy is forged until our learners are able to vote. That way we can ensure that true democracy in South Africa, our Land, prevails above all.”
