As South Africans took to the voting polls on August 3, 2016, IEC assistant manager Moses Pitso spoke to Joburg Today about the structures in place to make sure voting goes smoothly, the Randfontein Herald reports.
Millions of people are expected to vote around the country, and Pitso said the IEC had had a lot of time to plan and are “over prepared”.
“The IEC has a number of administrative units called voting districts, and in those voting districts there’s one voting station, and what we do is demarcate a ward in those voting districts to make sure that people in that ward do not have to travel long distances to go and vote,” says Pitso.
Voting stations are open until 7pm.
