CAPE TOWN - While there were a few hiccups at some voting points this morning, by and large the process has been smooth.

But Agang SA says it has filed an official complaint with the Independent Electoral Commission ( IEC) and it wants voting at a Philippi station to start from scratch.

Agang SA leader Mamphela Ramphele says she was met with scenes of chaos when she visited the venue earlier today and IEC rules were flouted.

She claims there was also a problem with the voters' roll.

"The voters' roll that they received in the morning started with alphabet number N so the people who stood there from 4am, if their surname started with a 'B', they couldn't vote."

Elsewhere in the country the Democratic Alliance (DA)'s Gauteng premier candidate Mmusi Maimane has described making his mark as a profound moment.

Maimane voted in Dobsonville in Soweto, his childhood neighborhood.

He says this day made him reflect on the country's political history.

"I voted for the ANC, right in this church so standing here today, realising what Nelson Mandela gave all of us is the right to choose any other party we want to."
