​Change of LGE System Could Lead to Logistical Nightmare

The IEC says there will be a logistical nightmare if the Local Government Election system is changed to allow voters to cast their ballots anywhere in the country

The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) says there will be a logistical nightmare if the Local Government Election system is changed to allow voters to cast their ballots anywhere in the country, if they are outside their voting districts on Election Day.

IEC deputy chairperson, Terry Tselane, says, “On the day of Local Government Elections, we have got 4 649 different ballot papers, so if you are registered in Johannesburg in a particular ward, your ward is going to be different from a person who is in Kimberley.”

Tselane explains that, “…if you were to be given a ballot paper for an area where you come from, it would mean that we would have to chase people around with ballot papers relevant for their different areas and I think that would be almost impossible.”
