Citizens need to take seriously the impact of the electoral system 

Despite most areas starting election day on a good footing, there were some communities protesting about service delivery and interruptions which may have disrupted the voting process.
The IEC addressed some of these disruptions during a media briefing on Monday afternoon.
Lecturer in the department of political and international studies at Rhodes University, Thapelo Tselapedi, says voting is a political tool for change on service delivery.
