Tlokwe - IEC officials huddled around a heater at Laerskool President Pretorius in Potchefstroom on Wednesday morning as they awaited residents in the area to come and cast their votes.

By 6am, the small school hall had already been set up with 3 voting stations and tables where officials would be assisting voters.

A police vehicle was parked outside the school's entrance and four cars were visible in the parking lot.

Two party agents from the DA and the ANC had arrived, as well as an observer from the FF Plus.

Two students from North West University Janka van Zyl and Chante Truter arrived at the voting station by 6.30am.

"We just came early so we can get this over and done with so we can enjoy  the rest of the day."

The first time voters said they were excited to cast their votes.
