Further more, the Miss SA organization has introduced the voting system, meaning the public will now get the opportunity to vote for their favorites. Those who want to vote can go to the Miss South Africa website misssa.co.za, 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 in store (at any Checkers, Checkers Hyper, Shoprite or Usave). Choose your voting bundle - R20, R50 or R100 and the cashier will cast your votes on the Computicket system and print your voting receipt. There will be three voting bundles available: R20 - 4 votes; R50 - 12 votes (two free votes) and R100 - 25 votes (five free votes).
