South Africans casts their ballots

Voters are given receipts after their IDs are scanned prior to casting their ballots. For the first time, the ANC faced a sizable black opposition party, the Congress of the People, formed by ANC dissidents. The other major opposition party, the Democratic Alliance, is led by a white woman, Helen Zille. For some voters, the early euphoria of democracy has faded.
