How to Check if Your Name is on the Electoral Rolls?

Having a Voter Identity (ID) Card does not automatically mean that you can vote or that your name appears in the Electoral Rolls. To enable you to Vote your name must appear in the Electoral Rolls. To make sure that your name is present in the Electoral Rolls, it is advised that you check the list beforehand.

Please note: Electoral Rolls are frozen 10 days before the last date of filling nominations. Once the Rolls are frozen, only those whose names appear in the Rolls will be able to Vote.
