South Africans in London cast their votes at Trafalgar Square

Voting abroad is underway in what could be one of South Africa’s most historic elections since the inception of democracy.

More than 24,000 South Africans are registered to make their mark in central London on Saturday and Sunday.

This is the Electoral Commission of South Africa’s (IEC) biggest international voting station.

In 1933, the High Commission of South Africa, SA House was built on London’s Trafalgar Square.

That is where, over the next 48 hours, “Saffas abroad” will exercise the right to vote.

But they will only have one ballot paper, carrying the names of some 70 political parties, to make their cross next to.

They will no longer need only their passports to show IEC officials, an ordinary ID will do fine.

Only nearly 20,000 South Africans voted abroad in 2019, but with more than 70,000 registered this year.
