Cape Town - The polls have opened on Wednesday for South Africans to vote in the fifth democratic general elections. 

Thousands of people are already queuing to make their mark today after weeks of election campaigns.

Fine weather is expected today throughout the country with moderate wind in Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.

Things you need to vote today:
- Your green ID-book or a temporary identity certificate valid today

Things to remember:
- No selfies in the voting booth or of your ballot papar.
- Keep calm and voting's on
- If you're not voting where you are registered you'll need to fill out a form at the voting station. The IEC has, however, asked that people vote where they are registered, unless it's impossible.

We want your feedback!
We're looking for your election selfies, what your experience was like today and how long you spent queuing. Send us these feedback by clicking here and you could win a Samsung Galaxy S5 or R5000 in cash prizes.

Today you need to download our app. It will be running live results as they become available later tonight. Get it in these app stores. Or visit our maps on other devices, web here.
