Howzit! We’ve tried our best to answer any questions you might have about voting abroad in the South African National Election. Please note that this is based on our experience in 2019, which may change ahead of the elections in 2023.
For South Africans wishing to vote abroad, there are quite a few important deadlines you can’t miss, especially the deadline for the VEC10 form. Please subscribe to receive email updates from us using the form on this page, and we will notify you of all the important election deadlines.
Generally, we recommend that if you have any specific questions you check out the IEC website, but if you’re still unable to find the answer you’re looking for, you’re welcome to email us firstname.lastname@example.org
