Today, millions of South Africans will cast their votes in the fifth democratic elections since 1994. Government has declared this day a special public holiday to ensure that all eligible voters have sufficient time to cast their votes. This year’s election is special for few reasons; it is the first time the youngsters born after 1994 will be able to vote. It also coincides with the country celebrating 20 Years of Freedom.
