Politics and Society Public protests cast a shadow over SA voter registration

The first registration weekend for South Africa’s 2016 local government elections, which took place in March, saw a number of disruptions due to protest action.

On 9 and 10 April, South Africa’s Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) will host the final voter registration weekend before the elections are eventually held. The election date is yet to be announced; but in the run-up, it is important to find out what these disruptions and protests mean for the polls.
