But so far, things have been peaceful today.
Residents have gathered at the Vyeboom soccer grounds, while others are arriving at some of the 56 voting stations in Vuwani.
Many are clearly boycotting the elections.
Some residents are taking part in a community soccer tournament where there is entertainment provided by those who opted not to vote.
Residents who have not voted say they are protesting the merging of the Vuwani with Malamulele municipalities.
