It was a slow start for some voting stations in the Free State this morning.
DA provincial chairperson, Annelie Lotriet, says no crises were reported at stations that opened late, but voters turning up at the wrong voting stations can create problems.
All 1 523 voting stations in the Free State are operational after a total of 52 opened late this morning.
Chris Mepha, head of the Independent Electoral Commission in the province, says a voting station at Smithfield was the last to open shortly after 08:00 today. This after the IEC’s area manager was involved in a car accident en route to the voting station.
