Voting opens at 07:00 and will close at 21:00.

Around 27.7 million South Africans are registered to cast their vote – the highest total ever in what will be the seventh election since 1994.

The ruling African National Congress (ANC) received the most votes in eight of Mzansi’s nine provinces in the most recent election in 2019.

The Western Cape voted to remain under the Democratic Alliance (DA).

The ANC received a total of 57.5% of the vote five years ago, but that is widely expected to dramatic change this time around with polls suggesting the party could drop well below the 50% mark.

The ANC received 230 out of the 400 seats in parliament in 2019.

The South African website will publish the latest votes counted as and when confirmed by the Electoral Commission (IEC).
