CAPE TOWN - The Department of Home Affairs on Thursday revealed its offices would remain open this weekend to assist with voter registration.

South Africans who do not have identity documents (ID)s and wish to register can go to one of more than 400 offices countrywide from 8am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Department spokesperson Ronnie Mamoepa says, "Home Affairs offices will be at hand to deliver services to those citizens who require IDs or temporary identity certificates. We are also calling on those who have not yet collected their IDs to do so during the voter registration weekend."

At least 24 million people have registered to vote.

South Africa will go to the polls in the coming months.
