Its silly season election time in SA.

The good news for all you expats. Mbeki is being the big man, and you're to be allowed to vote (finally!)

South Africans abroad will be able to vote
The Electoral Act will be amended to ensure that South Africans abroad on election day will be able to cast their vote, President Thabo Mbeki said yesterday.

The bad news is that the voting age might be lowered to 16(?). This is according to the Election committee adds calling for everyone older then 16 to register.

I haven't heard anything about this elsewhere however. Id think a major change such as this would have caused a bigger upset.
