We were all excited to go vote yesterday, arrived at Weltevredenpark primary our polling station at about 06:10 and must have been about 110th in the queue , wanted to get our voting over and done with early , at 7 polling station opened and we all moved in , yes we will be in and out by 8 then head for breakfast , wrong there was only 1 scanner , then another queue was formed for the aged and their families and those with children , at any given time this queue was on average about 40 deep , now we have 1 scanner 2 queues . The queue for the average person hardly moved as preference was given to the aged queue , finally arrived at the scanner for every 3 aged people scanned 1 was scanned from the normal queue , plus the scanner does not scan the first time , maybe the third time then it must print , once past the scanner i was the only person in the hall voting due to the backlog at the scanner , finally got out there at 10 , people were turning around in there droves due to the length of the queue and the time standing in it , but the same thing happened last election and more scanners were called for , did the IEC not learn from the last election ? please IEC get more scanners

Your 2014 Election Summary

Smaller parties, notably, took a beating. AGANG never made it to the start and COPE became a footnote. The IFP's support was halved, a prime reason being the NFP (IFP rebels), entering the KZN political arena.
