Pretoria - The IEC released three mobile apps on its website to help you vote and keep track of results, IEC chief information officer Libisi Maphanga said.

The IEC app for phones and tablets provides personal voter and general election information.

The second app is a game called IXSA aimed at young voters. It allows users to follow a character through election day, facing typical challenges.


The game is free for download for Android and Apple and can be played on Facebook.


The third app is aimed at media and political parties to run up-to-date election information on their own platforms straight from the IEC. – Pretoria News
