Those who want to vote can go to the Miss South Africa website misssa.co.za; the Computicket website (by making payment via their credit card) or go to the money market counter at any Checkers, Checkers Hyper, Shoprite or Usave and cast their votes on the Computicket system making a cash payment.
On the Miss South Africa website, click on the Miss South Africa 2020 tab, select the semi-finalist profile of their choice and her Computicket voting link will open. Payment can be made using a credit card.
To vote using cash: Go to the money market counter at any Checkers, Checkers Hyper, Shoprite or Usave, choose your voting bundle and the cashier will cast your votes on the Computicket system and print your voting receipt. There will be three voting bundles available: R20 for 4 votes; R50 for 12 votes (two free votes) and R100 for 25 votes (five free votes). Each semi-finalist has a voting number (see above).
The public’s vote will be the equivalent of that of a fifth judge. For any contestant to progress, it will have to win the hearts of three of the five judges with the public as the fifth judge. This allows the Miss South Africa Organisation to engage the public in electing its representative while also utilising the other judges voting power to act as “checks and balances” to prevent any one contestant from being unfairly advantaged strictly as a result of voting power.
A contestant’s social media following will not be considered with regards to votes. Funds raised will go towards the upskilling, empowerment, and training of the Top 10. While certain aspects of the pageant are sponsored by our generous partners, others are not. We want to ensure that our contestants have every growth opportunity. Some money will also go towards the Miss South Africa Foundation.
All results are audited by PWC.
