It was a long election day in Borderstan as neighborhors to vote (and then for the results, which perhaps came earlier than expected at the presidential level. (We will have local ANC race results later today).

Tuesday (Election Day) can only be categorized as a very anxious (yet exciting) day in Borderstan. In the neighborhood, and throughout the city, thousands residents filed in to polling stations, some even waiting as long as two hours to vote.

During the morning and afternoon, lines snaked outside of buildings, leaving many residents stranded in cold temperatures and missing hours of work. In the evening hours, bars filled up and attracted residents with drink specials and flat screens covering the election tallies.

Here are some images of the election excitement, captured on Tuesday, November 6, 2012.
