Meanwhile, police have refused to allow three sealed boxes containing unused ballot papers, to be delivered at the Fleurhof Primary School west of Johannesburg.

They say a private security guard came without an escort and wanted to leave the boxes there.

The boxes were left at the gate and no one attended to them.

Some party agents from the EFF and MK Party also said they would not allow them in.

The station closed just before 10pm after experiencing long queues throughout the day.

Several voters were turned away after the 9pm closing time.

Musa Sibiya who was turned at the gate says he is disappointed.

Earlier, chaos broke out between voters and the Ekurhuleni Metro Police officials at a voting station in Katlehong, Gauteng over the voting process.

Frustrated voters have been forcing their way in to cast their ballot after waiting hours.
