Do you want my vote? Young South Africans' voting behaviour
Date: 27 July 2016
Time: 10h30 - 12h30
Venue: Conference room, ISS Pretoria, Block C, Brooklyn Court, map

Securing young people’s vote is key to winning elections. With local government polls two weeks away, are South Africa’s political parties likely to attract the youth vote?

Drawing on a national study of high school, college and university students, this seminar takes stock of the factors that influence young South Africans’ voting behaviour. The findings show that corruption is a major disincentive to voting, and the ruling African National Congress’ popularity is waning.

A monograph on the research results, Do You Want My Vote? Understanding young South Africans voting behaviour will be launched at the seminar.

Chair: Gareth Newham, Head, Governance, Crime and Justice division, ISS

Speakers:

  • Lauren Tracey, Researcher, Governance, Crime and Justice division, ISS
  • Ace Moloi, author of 'Holding My Breath' and former University of Free State student activist
  • Koketso Moeti, National Coordinator, Local Government Action and Executive Director, amandla.mobi
