|Eastern Cape||118 574|

Yesterday the Commission recorded an all-time milestone of over one hundred thousand online registrations. Today the figure of online registrations stands at 40 000.
The Commission is seized with resolving some online registrations that gave a “pending” message. The “pending” message is received by voters in instances where the ID image that they have
uploaded cannot be read or recognised by the system or where an image other than an ID has been uploaded.
We urge voters to take extra care and follow system prompts when uploading images of their ID.
The Commission applauds thousands of South Africans who have gone online and visited our registration stations to register, re-register or check their details. We urge those that have not
done so to use the remaining hours of today to go out in their numbers to register.
