Residents were asked their opinion on the election turnout and this is what they had to say:

Nickki Lin: I think this year’s voter turnout will probably be lower because many people did not register to vote especially those under 22.
Mario Landman: I think this year’s voter turnout will be high, it is time for change and I believe everyone wants to see change.
Pontsho Maheso: I think this election turnout will be low because am only seeing mature people in the lines, I don’t see many young voters here.
Mpho Maheso: Judging from the lines it is just constant numbers of people coming in, I think we are looking at about the same turnout as previous years.

Crawford International Lonehill also started with difficulties. Ward 94 councillor David Foley said the IEC machines had a network issue but everything had been resolved.
