Voters line up to cast their special votes

The special voting process at Rynpark 1 went down without a hitch.

Rynfield residents registered to cast special votes on May 27 and 28 turned up in their numbers to make their mark.

Special votes for the 2024 national and provincial elections were cast at Rynpark 1, making it easy for elderly residents of the facility and surrounds to avoid the snaking lines tomorrow (May 29).

Etzel and Karen Wakefield of Rynfield said it is the responsibility of every South African to vote in order to save the country from self-serving politicians.

According to Ward 24 Clr Nicola da Silva, more than 1 000 individuals registered for special voting privileges at Rynpark 1.

“During the first day of voting (May 27), 985 voters exercised their democratic right to vote,” she said.

Werner van Niekerk was on hand to assist his friend, Ivan Hunter to make his mark on May 28, at Rynpark 1. Hunter said he is voting for change and the end of corruption.

“The remaining registered voters have until 17:00 to visit the polling station while representatives of the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) will be conducting home visits.”

Registered Rynfield voters, eligible for special voting privileges, took their seats shortly before 09:00 on May 28 outside the Rynpark 1 polling station.
