Johannesburg - People who have not yet cast their votes in the general elections should wait in the queue at their voting stations and patiently wait their turn, the ANC said on Wednesday.

"We have been assured by the... Electoral Commission [of SA (IEC)] that those who are at the voting station at 21:00, which is the closing time, will not be turned back until they have voted," ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu said in a statement.

He urged latecomers to remain patient and not stray from their voting stations.
