Petition for more overseas voting stations near you

Support the DA’s fight to get you more overseas voting stations close to where you live by completing the petition.

With just 15 more well-located voting stations abroad, hundreds of thousands more South Africans can vote overseas!

Please complete the petition by 15 February 2024, and share it widely, to help the DA’s fight for more voting stations where South Africans are actually based.

The current legislation and the Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) undermine the rights of South Africans abroad by not making voting stations available in the right places overseas. It is our constitutional right to vote in the national election!

With more than two million South Africans either living, working, studying, or travelling abroad, the IEC has an obligation to provide these citizens with their constitutional right to register and to vote.

Please complete this petition by 15 February 2024 and share it widely.

Registration and voting are currently limited to embassies, high commissions, and consulates which are often challenging to access.

The only solution to ensuring you can vote in 2024 would be online registration (get help registering online to vote over here), and an increased number of voting stations to accommodate cities with high numbers of South African citizens.

The DA will exhaust every avenue to ensure South Africans have fair and equitable access to voting.

Complete the petition by 15 February 2024 and share it widely to help the fight for more voting stations.
