DURBAN - As tensions flare up at the different voting stations because of long queues, IEC presiding officer Vijay Chetty urges voters to go to the correct voting stations where they are registered.

"Our hands are tied. There is certain protocol in place and in this case they have to fill in Section 24 forms if you are not registered at the voting station, which people don't want to do. "

An irate voter Yvette Govender said she had voted her before at Moorton and was told that her voting station was in Welbedeen.

"I have been in the queue since this morning and I dont even know if I want to vote. How can they just change my station."

Chetty said she had called in the police to intervene as the crowds became irate.
