Rondebosch - Voting begun at St Paul's Church after a 40-minute delay at the polling station in Rondebosch, Cape Town, on Wednesday.

The queue at the church, where Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille was set to cast her vote, was over 200 people long.

The presiding officer of the polling station, at a building on the grounds of St Paul's Church, was overheard saying that she had phoned her supervisor to get a replacement ballot box.

Voter Dr Helen Crichton said she had to go on duty at a nearby hospital at 08:00 and remonstrated with the presiding officer, who told her that there was a "problem with the ballot box".

A DA official said there was only one functional ballot box at present.
