South Africa: Youth Voter Registration Drops Ahead of Election

Situation Reports

What Happened: South Africa has experienced a significant drop in youth voter registration ahead of the country’s May 8 election, News24 reported April 30.

Why It Matters: A significant decline in young voters has the potential to damage the electoral performance of a number of parties that rely on the support of younger citizens.

Background: South Africa has been ruled by the African National Congress (ANC) since the end of apartheid 25 years ago. But a new generation of South African voters with little or no memory of apartheid have less loyalty to the party, and are now threatening its control.
