  • Only numerical values, limited to a pre-defined number of digits, are allowed in the capture fields.

  • The save button is disabled until double capturing complete.

  • Validate that the all fields are captured and correspond for the 1st and 2nd capture.

  • Validate that the total votes cast is equal to the votes cast for parties plus spoilt votes.

  • Validate whether the voting district and/or ballot type is expected to give a result.

  • Parties also requested that reports display both the VD number and VS name.

Most recent list of results received per vd

Most recent list of results received per VD

  • Parties requested functionality to list VDs in the order in which results are completed so that they can easily focus on latest available results i.e. an option to list the most recent results per province or municipality.

  • Three methods will be employed based on the published date:

    • Most recent 100 results ( low activity period).

    • Most recent results per time period e.g. 15 min intervals ( peak activity period).

    • Single result for specific VS or VD.

Issue tracking

Issue tracking

  • Parties will have the ability to log and track their own issues through unique logon facility for each party at national and provincial level.

  • Planned status levels are:

    • Logged

    • In progress

    • Resolved, with an option to view the resolution

Results system auditing

Results system auditing

  • External Auditing by Independent Auditor as well as requested by a party

  • Training and Dry Run to be performed to stress test.

Declaration of results

Declaration of results

  • Section 57 of the Electoral Act, 73 of 1998

  • The Commission must determine and declare the results within seven (7) days, but not before 21:00 on the second day after voting or before all objections received in terms of section 55 have been dealt with.

  • The result may be declared if all voting station results have not been received if:

    • waiting will unreasonably delay the declaration;

    • and the outstanding results are not likely to materially affect the overall result.
