Widespread delays reported in Cape Town
CAPE TOWN – There appeared to be widespread problems with voting stations in Cape Town on Wednesday, a DA official said on Wednesday.
Peter Fisher, local chair of the Democratic Alliance for Ward 59, which includes Rondebosch and Claremont, said there were many delays in the district.
“Of the eight voting stations in the district, there are problems with six.”
There had been a 40-minute delay at St Paul’s Church in Rondebosch, Cape Town, where DA leader Helen Zille was set to cast her vote at 8am.
Fisher said he was also aware of a problem in the Steenberg area.
Polling booths have been scheduled to open at 7am for South Africa’s fifth post-apartheid national and provincial elections.
