3) How can you find your polling unit in the by-elections?

A polling unit is where a person can register to vote, or is registered to vote. 

You can locate your polling unit using INEC’s Polling Unit Locator Tool.

It is advisable that your polling unit is very near to your residence because of the restricted movement on election days. 

If you have also relocated to another place outside the where you initially registered, you will have to transfer your registration to a polling unit within your new area of residence as you cannot vote in a polling unit without prior registration.

You can transfer your registration by following the guidelines on the INEC website. However, you must do so at least 60 days before an election.
