The 2024 South African general elections are here, and some prominent figures have taken to social media to encourage citizens to go out and vote.

Springbok captain Siya Kolisi has urged fellow South Africans to exercise their right to vote.

Kolisi expressed, “Happy Voting Day, Mzansi 🇿🇦! Let’s honour the sacrifices made for us to have this right. Your voice matters. Make it count!”

The 32-year-old is ploughing his trade for Top 14 France side for Racing 92.

The network of 23 292 voting stations opened for voting at 07h00 this morning and will close at 21h00. It is important to emphasise that eligible voters who will be at the voting station at 21h00 will be allowed to vote and not turned away.

The IEC reiterated that voters must vote where they are registered.

The Commission also wishes to remind all eligible voters of the following:

To bring along valid South African identity document.

That each voter will be verified on the voters’ roll and marked with ink on the left thumb.

Each voter will receive three ballot papers: the national, regional, and provincial ballot papers. Voters are reminded to indicate their choices with one mark on each ballot (voters who have given pre-notification to vote at a voting station outside the province in which they are registered will receive only the national ballot).

That each ballot paper will be validated with a stamp on the reverse.
That all three ballots must be deposited in the ballot box at the voting station.

It is prohibited for a voter to take a photograph of their marked ballot paper. This arrangement is necessary to protect the secrecy of the choice of voters and to avoid voters being coerced or unduly induced into making political choices.
