#AddressTheVotersRoll – #UDMYV says SA youth must register and take their right to vote seriously!
The UDM Youth Vanguard (UDMYV) encourages the youth of South Africa to register in their numbers on the 10th and 11th of March 2018 and to take the determined step to vote in the 2019 National and Provincial Elections.
Those who have already registered, must make time to ensure that their names and correct physical addresses appear on the voters roll. Go to the IEC’s website to check your information on the voters roll or SMS your ID Number to 32810 (R1.00 per SMS).
The UDMYV believes that young South Africans have an obligation to register and to vote. For, if you decline to register and/or boycott the vote, it means you have given away your right to influence the course the country takes in the five years after 2019.
Snubbing registration and refusing to vote is not rebellion against the African National Congress (ANC) government; it is in fact giving the very same ANC government permission to continue looting state resources that should be spent on youth advancement, skills development and job creation for young South Africans.
We therefore call on our fellow young country men and women, to register in your millions and in 2019, choose to vote for leaders who are not corrupt, racist, criminals who run our country like thieves dressed in saintly skins. We must vote for leaders who will create opportunities for education, entrepreneurship, jobs as well as enabling youth to become wealth creators in their communities.
The UDMYV has placed it faith in the United Democratic Movement, as the party which espouses these ideals, and which has the right people for the job; a party that is conscious of the plight of young South Africans and creates space for us to make our voices heard to determine our own future.
