On 28 October 2010, the National Assembly adopted a Bill that seeks to amend the Municipal Electoral Act (Act 27 of 2000). The Bill will now await approval by the National Council of Provinces (NCOP). The proposed law seeks to introduce rules to increase the number of agents at voting stations (for both political parties and individual candidates), depending on the number of the voting rooms/places in a station; to provide for the alteration of boundaries for voting stations if necessary; and also to clarify some of the rights and responsibilities to voters who need assistance. The amending Bill will further allow for special votes, after a voting period has ended, to cater for voters who were not able to vote in the districts where they had registered.
