While almost 10 million eligible voters in South Africa have not yet registered to vote in the upcoming national elections, some South Africans abroad have braved the cold to play their part.
Meet 21-year-old Katelin Hogue who visited the South African High Commission in Ottawa, Canada, to register, despite the -18°C weather.
“The weather was very cold; the roads were snowy, and the traffic was busy. But going through all of it was worth it to get registered,” she told News24.
Hogue has been living outside of South Africa for 15 years and still makes it a priority to vote.
