JOHANNESBURG -  eNCA takes a look at some of the questions commonly asked by voters, ahead of the May 8th poll.

Q: What happens if I make a mistake on the ballot paper/s?

A: If you incorrectly mark a ballot paper and realise this before placing the paper in the ballot box, ask the Presiding Officer for a new ballot paper. Please make sure that the incorrect ballot paper is marked as “cancelled”.

Once your ballot has been placed in the ballot box, it cannot be removed.
