The Match-Maker!

Find your perfect political match:

Prepare for the Big Date

Pre-date jitters can bring more than just butterflies. To minimise cold feet and flaking out, we have curated a set of resources to help you get to know your perfect match a bit more.




When you head out to the polls you will need: 

  1. The correct voting station, check where you're registered here

  2. A valid identification document: green barcoded ID book, smart-card ID or temporary ID certificate. Nothing else will do (not even your driver's licence). Catfishing is not cute.

What happens when you get there?

Okay, eager beaver, here's a run down of what to expect at the proceedings.

  • Your documents will be checked and verified, confirming you're on the voter's roll, and then your left thumb will be inked. It's our version of a hickey, and won't wash off for days: a proud sign of your intimate affairs!

  • You will receive 3 ballot papers. The 1st is the National Ballot, voting for parties only. The 2nd & 3rd are the Regional & Provincial Ballots, voting for parties or independent candidates

  • Your documents will be stamped. 

  • You will proceed to a private box to do the deed. To avoid a spoilt ballot, ensure that you make only one mark on each ballot paper and that your mark is clear. If you make a mistake call an election official and they will provide you with a new ballot paper. When you are finished, fold your ballot papers in half and leave the voting booth.

  • Just a reminder – you are not allowed to photograph your marked ballot paper. so no selfies please!

  • An election official stationed at the ballot box will check that there is a stamp at the back of each of your ballots. Having made your mark, drop your completed ballot paper through the slot in the top of the ballot box.
