Independent Electoral Commission uses central accreditation system for 2019 National and Provincial Elections

Media Accreditation for all Results Operation Centres for the 2019 National and Provincial Elections

A central accreditation system will be used for the one national and nine provincial results operation centres for the 2019 National and Provincial elections.

Accreditation for all the Results Operation Centres is compulsory and must be done onlinehttps://evolve.eventoptions.co.za/register/iecmedia

The National Results Operation Centre (ROC) will again be in Pretoria in Hall J, Tshwane Events Centre (previously Pretoria International Show Grounds), Soutter Street (off DF Malan Street), Pretoria West.

For the location of provincial centres, a drop down menu is provided on the online link above.

To qualify for accreditation you will have to provide a headshot photograph, a valid media/press card or a signed letter from your station manager/editor on an original letterhead requesting accreditation.

Collection of cards:

Please indicate in your application at which venue you will be collecting your accreditation.

If you are collecting in person, you will be required to show proof of identification. If you are collecting on behalf of others, you will be required to show proof of identification and a letter of authorisation from your manager/editor with the names and ID or Passport numbers of the people you are collecting for.

PLEASE NOTE: Media representatives do not need accreditation to cover the elections. You will need a media/press card or a letter from your station manager/editor on an original letterhead confirming employment and your ID or Passport.

If you need assistance to register online or want to know whether your card is ready for collection, please send an email to Zinnia Peens at zinnia@eventoptions.co.za

If you have queries on the requirements for accreditation, please send an email to accreditation@elections.org.za

Please note: If you miss the deadline, you will be issued with a Day Pass which you will have to apply for every time you need access to the venue.
