Tuesday, April 12, 2016

Pretoria - The Gauteng Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs has thanked citizens who registered to vote this past weekend.  

“Seeing so many people, especially our youth, making use of this opportunity to contribute towards the success of our hard earned democracy is a definite sign that we are a nation working towards a very exciting and a much better future.

“By voting, we add our voice to make things happen. We embrace our achievements as a nation and how far we came since we took that first step two decades ago,” the department said in a statement on Tuesday.

The Local Government Election will take place on 3 August.

The department said it is not too late for those who have not registered to vote, as they can still do so at their local Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) offices.

“We are all looking forward to a free and fair Local Government Election, come August,” the department said. –
