Johannesburg - South Africans posted pictures and declared their excitement at casting their votes in the general election on Facebook on Wednesday.

His status is accompanied by a picture of a white hat with the words "Your vote can make history".

Sebrena Sodolay said: "two hour wait... and all done by 08h30!!!#Elections2014".

Her status was accompanied by a picture of her inked thumbnail.
