IEC – 2019 elections – SOUTH AFRICA


South Africans head to the polls on 8 May 2019 to vote in the country’s sixth national elections.   Over 26.7 million people registered to vote in the 2019 elections, with around 70% of that number (18.7 million) expected to actually show up to vote today.   The country’s close to 23,000 voting stations will remain open through to 21:00 this evening, with vote counts updating throughout the day. All results and information will come from the IEC’s Elections Results Centre in Pretoria.

Official results will be available from the IEC directly, using its results portal:

The final pronouncement of the 2019 election results are expected to made on Saturday, 11 May 2019.


In the 2014 elections, the ANC won 62.2% of the vote, with the DA securing 22.0% as the country’s official opposition. The EFF, which contested the national vote for the first time that year, debuted at 6.4% of the vote.

Looking at predictions for 2019, eyes will be on the ANC which is largely expected to show a decline in support (to between 55% and 60%) with the DA anticipated to also show a drop, or remain fairly flat (18% to 20%).

The EFF, meanwhile, is expected to show a major boost in support numbers, with some outlets expecting around double the support (between 11% and 14%).
