  • You may only vote at the voting station where you registered
  • You need your valid ID document, i.e. an original green bar-coded SA ID book, a smartcard ID or a Temporary Identity Certificate
  • You do not need to bring proof of address
  • You can share that you have voted with family and friends on social media (#ivoted), but you cannot take photos of marked ballots
