Residents of a metropolitan municipality will receive two ballot papers in a municipal election:
• One for the metropolitan ward election, in which you vote for a specific person to represent your ward.
• A second for metropolitan PR votes.
The more votes a party gets, the more PR seats they get on the council. Here, you vote for a political party and not an individual.
Residents of a local council or a district council will receive three ballot papers:
• One for the ward election, in which you vote for a specific person to represent your ward.
• Another for PR on the local council. You will choose your preferred political party on this ballot paper.
• The third ballot is for PR on the district council. Again, you will vote for the political party of your choice.
