Johannesburg - It’s the year of selfies and what better way to capture your participation in the fifth democratic general elections than with a photo.
But before you smile, pout, show the peace sign or your best side, be warned: sneaking a selfie of a marked ballot paper in the voting booth could spell jail time for you.
The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) says it will use a no-nonsense approach on May 7 to deal with those found guilty of contravening electoral rules.
This week a picture of an unmarked ballot paper in London surfaced on Twitter after expats voted abroad.
In the picture, a ballot paper containing political parties and all candidates can be seen.
