Why vote DA?
South Africa heads to the polls in the 2021 Local Government Elections on 1 November. Voting stations are open from 7am to 9pm.
Now, all over South Africa, is the time to elect leaders that will work hard for you, be on your side, and secure your future.
Independent reports show that the only towns in South Africa that work are DA towns, because the DA gets things done.
Only the DA is big enough to beat the ANC; keep the EFF out; and turn around towns and cities to end corruption, bring capable governance, and create places of opportunity and security.
It’s time to hit the reset button, to secure your future, and vote DA!
