The importance of casting your vote...
Working with grassroots communities, CYPSA has become increasingly aware of the fact that many South African communities, especially young people, have decided not to vote this year.
CYPSA therefore highlights the importance of voting:
- It is important for young people to vote as their futures and the future of the next generation(s) depend on it.
- Voting gives you a chance to choose leaders and representatives who will act responsibly and in the best interest of our country at all times.
- Your vote holds elected officials to the promises they made and accountable for their behaviour while in office.
CYPSA encourages all its members to carefully consider the various choices and to vote according to their conscience in the upcoming election.
To check if you are registered and for further information visit the IEC website at www.elections.org.za.
If you missed out on voter registration on the 26th and 27th January, follow the link below for details on how you may still register:

Who are CYPSA?
Umphakathi Okhathazekile (the Concerned Young People of South Africa) is a non-profit organisation which was started by concerned people of South Africa in 2009 and then registered as an NPO in 2010 and as a PBO in 2018.
The moral decay in our communities caused such great distress to us that we could not keep silent any longer. We have united in taking a stand against the devastation caused by the many social ills plaguing our nation.
CYPSA realizes that many South Africans are concerned about the direction in which S.A. is heading.
As an organization representing grass-roots communities across the country, we invite all concerned South Africans from all cultures, races and communities to share (anonymously if so wished) their concerns with us:
