Cape Town - Voters braved the rain to cast their ballots in parts of Khayelitsha on Wednesday.
This was despite electoral officials at a temporary voting station near the famous Town Two tshisanyama were fearing that the tent they were housed in could be flooded with water and necessitate relocation of the voting station if the rain persisted.
The voting station has a total of 1 893 registered voters, but 348 had already voted at 12pm.
The voting station, which is at the corner of Spine Road, was surrounded by flood water after rain poured down before midday.
Presiding officer Nontozakhe Tshawe said the mats in the tents were already wet because of the rain.
