Locate your ward councillor online with My Candidate

Johannesburg – Non-profit open and non-partisan organisation ‘Open Cities Lab’ launched an online tool called ‘My Candidate’ to help South Africans locate their candidate ward councillors ahead of the Local Government Election on 1 November 2021.

The tool only requires a physical address to locate a councillor.

Thereafter, the web tool will provide information from the Independent Electoral Commission on the candidates of each ward in a list, with details on other wards in which they are contesting, and links to Google searches on their names.

It also provides the ages and political parties of the respective candidates.

In a radio interview with SAfm Open Cities Lab founder and CEO, Richard Gevers said a lot of people are still indecisive about who they are going to vote for, the tool will assist South Africans to make informed decisions.

“We’re very excited about people being able to make informed choices around the people that represent them,” said Gevers.
