The Electoral Commission of South Africa in the Western Cape says there were no major disruptions in their operations during the voter registration weekend.

Only two polling stations in Phillipi, Cape Town and Grabouw opened late on Saturday, due to service delivery issues.

But few hours later, IEC crews managed to resume their work.

The IEC says around 120-thousand people visited their stations over the weekend in the province.

They included first-time voters and residents who updated their details.

Nationally, the IEC says it has exceeded its target to register one million people for the 2024 general elections.

The commission says that number was recorded on Saturday alone.

The IEC will be releasing the results of the voter registration weekend on Monday afternoon.

Provincial Electoral Officer, Michael Hendrickse, says they’re satisfied with how things went.

“We always looking to ensure that more South Africans take the opportunities that have been made available by the IEC. If you have missed the opportunity to register this weekend, you can go and register online at and this online platform is available 24 hours”.
