Cape Town - Investigations by the Electoral Commission of SA (IEC) in the Western Cape into alleged irregularities found no wrongdoing by officials, provincial electoral officer Courtney Sampson said on Wednesday.
Sampson told reporters Agang SA leader Mamphela Ramphele said she "busted an official with ballot papers" at a voting station in Philippi, Cape Town.
Sampson said an inquiry revealed that the Bongolethu Primary School was used as a voting centre, but that various classrooms were used as sub-stations.
"The official involved was moving material from one sub-station to another. So we are satisfied," Sampson explained.
A complaint that a Gauteng resident was given a ballot paper at the station which was already marked was found to be false.
Officials insisted she was given a clean ballot sheet, but was mistakenly given both a national and provincial sheet.
In terms of the rules, she could only vote in the national elections because she was not registered in the Western Cape.
Officials noticed the mistake before she could place her provincial vote in the ballot box.
Overall, voting was progressing well in the province after earlier delays.
"There are queues developing. We've got a team of people out there who are managing the queues as best as they can," Sampson said.
This conveyed two messages to the IEC.
"On the one hand it's a frustrating experience for people who have to stand in the line to vote. On the other hand it shows that people have got an excitement about this election," Sampson said.
People voting at polling stations where they were not registered posed a problem.
"If 2 500 people register at a voting station, there are 2 500 voting sheets," the provincial IEC chief said.
"Should you now go and apply for a vote in a different voting station, it simply means the system is challenged somewhat."
