IEC continues vote capturing

The Electoral Commission is pulling all the stops to ensure the finalisation of the capturing and auditing of results for the 2024 National and Provincial Elections, and remains on course to complete the process timeously.
Briefing media at the National Results Operations Centre (ROC) in Midrand on Friday, the Commission’s Chief Electoral Officer, Sy Mamabolo, reiterated that counting at all voting stations has been completed, and that the Commission has all the results at its local offices.
“The process underway is to capture results on our system for tallying and seat allocation. So far, a total of 71.76 [percentage of] results have been captured,” Mamabolo explained.
The CEO reminded South Africans that the ballots are counted at the voting stations where they are cast.

“At all times, this is done in the presence of political party agents, independent candidate agents and observers, who monitor the entire counting and results process.
“The Commission regrets the incident this morning when the leader boards at the results operation centres and our website could not display the results. We wish to emphasise that our system did not crash and no data was compromised.
“The Commission went into the elections with a full IT plan, which includes back-up and recovery, in case it is needed. This situation has not arisen,” Mamabolo said.

Mamabolo said the incident involved the activation of a “necessary control” not to display to leader boards, which is a feature of the result system.
“Result capturing and other result collation activities proceeded without interruption,” he said.
