South African IEC launches online voter registration

On Wednesday, an online platform that allows new voters to register for the upcoming elections and pre existing voters to update their details in South Africa was launched by the Electoral Commission (IEC).

This is part of the implementation by the IEC to make registration a lot more convenient and easy for people across the country.

The IEC said, “The Electoral Commission believes the online facility will be a game-changer in promoting voter registration especially among young and first-time voters. Research and engagements over the years with young eligible voters to better understand their behaviour have frequently identified the lack of online voter registration as a key obstacle.”

This is also another way to keep the number of voters high despite the Covid-19 regulations that are currently in place in the country.
