About 27.7 million people registered to vote.

For 2024, voters received two national ballots: 

  • A national ballot contested solely by political parties — 200 National Assembly seats will be allocated from here. It contained 52 parties
  • A new national-regional ballot, where independent candidates can — for the first time — contest for the remaining 200 National Assembly seats together with political parties. This paper differs from province to province, and there are six independents running in four provinces

NOTE: The partial results may not be an accurate indication of the final outcome because counting from rural areas and townships where the ANC has historically had more support tends to take longer. Population density in the different voting districts can also be a variable. 

NOTE: The portion of results completed reflects the percentage of voting districts that have completed their count of the national ballot.
