Voter fluidity and abstention in the 2021 local government elections

In this webinar, we provide insight into the socio-demographic profile and motivations of those who stayed away from the polls and those who switched their votes.

Details

Two key trends have emerged from the recent local government elections. One, that an increasing number of voters stayed away from the polls and, two, that an increasing number of those that did vote switched their votes away from the dominant political parties. In this webinar, we provide insight into the socio-demographic profile and motivations of those who stayed away from the polls and those who switched their votes within five metropolitan municipalities. The findings are based on a telephone survey conducted with over 3,000 participants and provides one of the most robust first glimpses into the emerging trend of voter fluidity and further analysis of voter abstention in South Africa.
