The past weekend (17 &18 September 2021) was much anticipated by many South African citizens as it was the official registration weekend for the upcoming local government elections happening of November 1 2021. Many were looking forward to the weekend and more especially registering to vote in general since registration can now be done online. Its a no brainer that many SA youth were reluctant on even registrering as many say "whats the point?". With the increasing unemployment rates and zero efforts being seen to reduce this, are they really wrong for asking this crucial question? Is voting really benefitting the youth when so many of them are sitting at home with their qualifications?
Voting gives the citizens the power to choose their leader and leading political party but it seems the highest population group of this country has lost all hope.
Is voting still important for you or you view it as another waste of time?
