In South Africa we elect ward councillors during municipal elections. They win their position directly through our vote and not through a party list and so are our best representatives in our municipalities. Unfortunately, many people don't know what ward they live in, who their ward councillor is, or how to contact them. In partnership with Speak Up Mzansi by Freedom House and People's Assembly by the Parliamentary Monitoring Group, Code for South Africa has developed a mobile-friendly tool that makes it really easy to find out who your ward councillor is and how to contact them: Find Your Ward Councillor.
