Notes

“In the light of our history where denial of the right to vote was used to entrench white supremacy and to marginalize the great majority of the people of our country, it is for us a precious right which must be vigilantly respected and protected.”
- Chief Justice Chaskalson (from the majority judgment in the Constitutional Court case, Minister of Home Affairs vs NICRO and others, 2004 - a case which ultimately re-affirmed the rights of prisoners to vote in South Africa)
