Elections in South African are managed by the Independent Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC). South Africans living and working outside of the country may vote in national general elections providing they are registered voters and on the electors roll. The voter must complete a Notification for Overseas Votes (VEC 10) form, and send it to the IEC. These forms are made available before elections once election dates have been announced.
Voting then takes place at a South African Embassy, Consulate or High Commission in their place of residence, on a date prior to the actual elections and set by the Independent Electoral Commission.
South African citizens over the age of 16, who have a green, bar-coded ID book may register to vote. Voting may been done from the age of 18. Consult the local South African Consulate for information on the procedures for overseas voting.
