JOHANNESBURG - With more people heading out to polling stations this morning, voters at some Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) centres in Gauteng said they're still waiting for ballot papers to be delivered.

Voters in Lenasia, Honeydew and Benoni said a few stations had not opened yet as IEC officials were still waiting for the deliveries to be made.

A man in Lenasia said he was heading home without having made his mark after being discouraged by the delay.

"The IEC officials told us there are no ballot boxes being delivered in the next 20 minutes. I waited for a long time so I left."

The IEC said deliveries had already been made to some of the affected stations and operations would resume as normal.

Provincial electoral officer Masego Shinuri assured the public that they would all be able to vote today.

Furthermore, the Pomolong voting station in Attridgeville reportedly had no ballot boxes this morning and it's also been suggested some election agents there were wearing ANC shirts.

Chief electoral officer Mosotho Moepya said the IEC was dealing with issues and asked voters to raise any concerns they had with the presiding officer at their voting station.

"Many stations have opened with no incidents, but those that have incidents are being addressed."

Home Affairs Minister Naledi Pandor ran into some problems at her voting station in Claremont this morning.

The station didn't open on time and ballot boxes and papers arrived late.

Pandor said it was frustrating.

"The lady who is the presiding officer has been trying to speak to everyone in the line, but it's very difficult for her because she's waiting on someone else to deliver the equipment."
