Following the death of Regional Councillor Germina Shitaleni, a by-election will be held at Swakopmund on May 29. Supplementary voter registration will take place this week from April 1-3 at seven fixed points and five temporary points around the coastal town. The points (see below) are open from 08h00 to 19h00. The supplementary registration is only for those people who do not currently have voters cards, such as those who have turned 18 recently.
