South Africans still have a lot of questions around their voting status and the process of the voter registration weekend.

Listen to the interview below:
As part of an effort to collect as many addresses as possible before the elections, we are sending a second sms for whoever we don't have addresses of.— Sy Mamabolo, IEC deputy chief electoral officer
If you registered on the 5th and 6th of March then we do have your records on file. If not an address then there's sufficient details.— Sy Mamabolo, IEC deputy chief electoral officer
President Jacob Zuma announced that the 2016 local government elections will take place on 3 August this year.
Tomorrow or Sunday, visit the voting station. The official will check the voters' roll. If there is no address record, you'll be requested to finish one at the voting station.— Sy Mamabolo, IEC deputy chief electoral officer
If your address places you outside of the voting station where you are registered, the law demands that you go to a station and register in person. The in-person requirement is part of the safeguards we have that we don't have ghost voters.— Sy Mamabolo, IEC deputy chief electoral
