The Independent Electoral Commission of South Africa scheduled the registration weekend for the municipal elections for the weekend of 18 and 19 September 2021.

This registration weekend will offer all eligible citizens an opportunity to register or update their registration details. All the 23,151 voting stations will open at 08h00 until 17h00 on both days. The Commission urges young people in particular to take advantage of this opportunity to register and eventually vote. 

There are currently 77,970 candidates of which 911 are independent.

Following the proclamation of the election date on 20 September 2021, the Commission will publish an amended election timetable which will provide truncated timelines. The shortened timeline is reasonably necessary to meet the outer deadline for the conduct of the 2021 municipal elections.
