On 8 May 2019, South Africans headed to the polls in their numbers. Analysts have described it as the most pivotal elections since the country’s dawn of democracy.
A record number of voters registered, but the youth under 30 was notably absent from that list. While voting across the country went largely smoothly, there were a number of issues with protest action preventing polling stations from opening. There were also issues with polling stations running out of ballot papers.
